Dancing Alone Together
A central resource for the digital dance world
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
To keep the community feeling alive, 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.) from the United States due to the increasingly high volume of classes.
CREATE — Dance-Making Prompts and Communities
Aiming to foster new collaborations and movement exploration, CREATE shares dance-making challenges issued by choreographers or companies.
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.
This project is currently being run single-handedly by Katherine Disenhof, a professional dancer with NW Dance Project, who is experiencing a temporary layoff due to COVID-19 closures. She is also a graphic designer for various Bay Area arts organizations, all of which have been severely impacted by the current situation.
