Dance Pandemic List Links

Dances choreographed for dancing alone or in households during the pandemic, and generously shared in the effort to keep us all on our feet and dancing together even if we are alone. Check for these dances on YouTube. See also Bob Green’s wonderful site with videos of some of these dances and additional dances, often including instructions beside the video.

Dance Animations by Keith Wood for some of these, and many other dances, are available at Dance Kaleidoscope’s excellent website type in the name of the dance and it will likely be available in the box below. Below the dance animation there is a button for “Call Sheet” which includes instructions for the dance.

Another suggestion for moving to ECD music comes from Don Bell. Music here: Article here;

Playford Pandemic Ball

Playford Pandemic Ball Out-Take

I warmly recommend viewing Karen Axelrod’s marvelous Tuesday Evening videos. They can be viewed, even if you do not have a Facebook account, on her page. There are six, so far. The first was made on March 31. Karen plays along with many other musicians who are patched in. You’ll hear some of your favorite tunes and get wonderful visits with the dance community via the message side bar and simply seeing the interactions with Karen, the music, and those who are playing along.
