While everyone is stuck in the house, it is nearly impossible to stay in shape and keep up your normal schedule. For all my fellow dancers missing their regular weekly classes, or anyone in need of an artistic outlet during this stressful time, I have compiled some information on how to access live virtual dance classes from established dance professionals.
