DanceSyndrome Responds to Coronavirus Closures with Free Online Dance Sessions

Our freelance Dance Artists have been working really hard behind the scenes to put these sessions together, but also to try and get the number and type of sessions right. The main challenge that we are facing is that we aren’t getting very much feedback and we can’t see the people who are participating, so we’re not getting that amazing feeling of seeing you all enjoying your dance sessions! We’re sure some of our participants are missing seeing their friends dancing and inspiring each other too. To try and overcome this, we have decided to offer some sessions on Zoom too.

Days and times are the times when videos will go live, but they will stay on our channels so that you can join in at any time that suits you.
