The dance community of southwest Vermont has taken this unusual summer of 2020 to work outdoors, in backyards, and open areas to create our own responses to COVID-19 through dance. The project was initiated out of a sense of deep loss in not being able to dance together in our usual dance class setting. Everyone had to work within the specific guidelines for social distancing and wearing of masks. It has been somewhat strange to work this way but also wonderfully gratifying to be in each others presence, sharing mutual support and solving the challenges of the day together.
