Introducing E-DanceSport (https://e-dancesport.com #edancesport) – a new non-profit dedicated to making the healthy motivation of competition accessible to all dancers of all ages, experience levels, dance styles, locations, or financial conditions.
We created this E-DanceSport platform, with lightning speed, in response to the desperation of dance students and professionals stuck at home avoiding the Coronavirus or recovering from Covid19. As dancers, the competitions and shows we’ve been rehearsing so hard for the last few months have been cancelled with no reschedule in sight. So our finely tuned muscles are gradually atrophying and our spirits are sinking, and video classes just aren’t enough. As dance professionals, our income has been abruptly cut short as we’ve been barred from our studios, stages, and ballrooms. Now we are left with little to pay the bills, unless we can start competing and coaching again quickly.
While we intend E-DanceSport to long outlive the coronavirus, for the immediate term, we will do everything we can to support the dance industry in novel, virtual ways. Join us to create and share fun dance videos with specific goals. Give purpose to targeted online coaching from your teachers. Benefit from invaluable personal critiques from expert judges around the world.
Please refer your dance friends to build this community and stimulate the “dance economy” in this time of great need.
Spread the dance, not the virus!
