We have created this page as a hub for online dance classes (uploaded videos or live streams to follow along to) in order to keep dancers positive and active in these uncertain times.
For all those dancers whose studio has become their living room or bedroom, we hope that this page will be full of content to keep you busy, strong and flexible whilst at home.
We will update the page daily with links to new streams, videos and workout or stretch routines to keep you from getting bored!
Please feel free to share this page with dancers you know or even non-dancers who want to try something new to keep moving (we will try and keep the ability range as wide as possible so that all can enjoy!).
If you have any YouTubers, Instagramers or theatres you know are live streaming of have relevant content that can be added to this list, please email the links to firstname.lastname@example.org.
