How Our Organizations are Adapting to the Covid-19 Crisis: transcenDANCE

TranscenDANCE quickly shifted to virtual programs, ensuring all students and artists had access to computers and internet within days of stay-at-home orders.

Planned artistic residencies became film projects, classes shifted to virtual formats, counseling sessions offered through Zoom, therapy hours increased.

Annual staged production converted to a professional dance film being released in October.
