DANCING ALONE TOGETHER
Dancing Alone Together aims to be a central resource for the dance world during this time of “social distancing”. Dancing Alone Together does not host classes or events, but rather collects information about the following types of online opportunities to make them easily accessible:
MOVE — Live-Streamed Dance Classes
In the spirit of togetherness and shared experiences, MOVE’s emphasis is on live-streamed classes as opposed to pre-recorded videos. The website listing is currently focused on dance classes (no fitness, wellness, mindfulness, etc.) with a recently-added section featuring multi-day workshops.
WATCH — Dance Performance Footage & Films
WATCH plugs the professional companies, presenters, and venues around the world who have made dance performances and dance films available online.
AN IMPORTANT UPDATE
OCTOBER 10, 2020 – Dancing Alone Together is winding down. The website will continue to post classes through the end of 2020, however the social media accounts will be taking a hiatus.
Thank you for your support through these past seven months. It has been truly remarkable to witness this online dance community unite so quickly and boldly adapt to the circumstances. Dancing Alone Together was conceived as a stopgap solution for providing access to digital dance resources until studios could recalibrate and reopen. Most essentially have now, either virtually or physically.
Please continue to support your local dance organizations. Thriving artists are essential to thriving communities.
This project is currently being run single-handedly by Katherine Disenhof, a professional dancer whose work has been significantly impacted by COVID closures. She is donating her time to keep Dancing Alone Together running.
