With performance venues and dance studios closed, here are this week’s SoCal dance events that won’t happen due to the Coronavirus. Why list dance events that have been cancelled or postponed? As a reminder of the investment of work, time, money, and heart that dancers and choreographers put in and who now are without work or pay. While many events hope to reschedule, some are shifting to on-line performances (latest info below, but please check the websites as these transitions are occurring daily). For now there are links for information and connection.
