DANCING SOLO TOGETHER
July 23 – September 3, 2020
Sadly, with the current surge of Covid-19 cases in LA and OC counties, we are pausing our live Thursday Solo Series until it is safe to dance together again. However, we will continue to present dance. In the interim, each dancer is video taping their performance which can be seen on our social media and website. Videos from our performers will go live on our every Thursday at 6pm. These videos will be available for a week.
The presentations will take place online every Thursday, July 23-September 3rd, 6PM.
Each performance is unique, highlighting solo dancers and their creative work. The dance presentations are intended to enhance the artistic experience embedded in the Laguna Beach life style, by offering dynamic and thought provoking dance performances.
Please Donate to Support our Dancers
During COVID-19, we have continued to provide jobs for these talented artists who are being hit very hard by the cancellations of live events. Please help us continue to support these deserving dancers, so they can bring joy to all of us. We appreciate your donations.
