SOCIAL DIS-DANCING - NSW
Ausdance NSW member Jamie Winbank has started an initiative to keep our bodies moving and to prompt our creative juices, here’s a little online dance film/project/thing, called the socialdis_DANCE project. The Social disDANCE Project was created to connect the dance community through movement and creativity.
If you’d like to be involved, every Monday you’ll be sent out a prompt (it might be an idea, concept, theme, quote to prompt choreographic inspiration) and a song. Then all you have to do is create 4x8 of a physical response, dance or choreography to that prompt and music, film it and send it back and it will be edited to create a weekly dance film.
There will be weekly classes: evening classes Monday (Jazz Technique), Tuesday (Contemporary Technique, Wednesday (Jazz/Theatre Jazz Combo) and Thursday (Stretch/yoga) night and Saturday (Dance conditioning/fitness) mornings.

AILEY EXTENSION - The official dance studio of Alvin Ailey American Dance Foundation. All levels of dancers welcome!
Ailey Extension was created to continue Alvin Ailey's legacy that dance comes from the people and should be given back to the people.
While these are difficult times for the dance community which relies on people gathering in spaces to share movement and create together, it feels important more now than ever to make dance accessible to everyone.
They are inspired by the unity of dancers across the globe sharing at-home classes and dance videos online. To continue their mission, they are sharing all Extension instructors' and guest instructors' online class resources to keep our community dancing!! Amazing.
