COVID-19 has crippled the dance world in an unconscionable way, but balancing the struggle, the dance goes on. Many venues have turned to digital ways of gathering to support the artists that were programmed for March, April and into the summer. Most online presentations are free, but some ask for financial support. Below is a list of venues that since March have been scheduling online performances that they will keep on their websites for us to view when we can.
