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 from dancers, choreographers, creative and technical staff, who now are without work or pay. With the statewide stay-at-home order extended to April 30, many events still hope to eventually reschedule. Meanwhile, more and more dance is shifting to on-line performances or classes. (Latest info below, but please check the websites as these transitions are occurring daily). For now, here are links for information and connection.
