JUST DANCE: Digital Pop-Up Series
Hey Kern County dance community! We hope you are all doing well and staying healthy during this time of social distancing and quarantine. KDA is not able to offer in-person programs at this time, but we are still on the MOVE! We know many of you are having to adjust your programs as well, and some are out of work at this time. There is so much love for dance and movement in Kern County and we want to continue to reach those looking to move and groove from home. To keep in step with our mission, KDA will roll out a series of pop-up digital dance classes and webinars throughout the remainder of the COVID-19 lockdown. Sponsored by Valley Strong Credit Union, we hope you will submit a class to our series!
WHY offer JUST DANCE: Digital Pop-Up Series?
KDA strives to help our community thrive through physical movement. Research also tells us that physical activity is good for mental health. Where there is a need, we find a way! What better time than now to help people get back to their love for dance, learn how to dance for the first time, or dance in their living room jsut for fun?
WHAT is JUST DANCE: Digital Pop-Up Series?
You may have heard of a pop-up restaurant or store that opens quickly in a temporary location and is intended to operate for only a short period of time. Similar to last year's pop-up summer adult dance class series, this is meant to pop-up on everyone's social media across Kern County! One teacher will "pop up" on Instagram, Facebook, or Zoom account and go LIVE! The class will be streamed live from 30 minutes to 1-hour, depending on the type of class and age group. The days and times of each teacher's class can vary according to what fits best for their schedule and KDA's JUST DANCE: Digital Pop-Up Series Calendar, so there's no overlap between the classes. Our goal is to provide a variety of dance styles, in a variety of time frames, to a wide range of age groups.
We want to show Kern County the vast array of dance in our community and stress the importance of Kern's creative economy- only YOU can help us do so!
