Sadly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, theaters, concert halls and other performing arts venues have had to close and either cancel or postpone productions. Please support artists who have lost their income by reaching out to your favorite theater companies, artists and studio teachers to see how you can help or by donating to a performing arts fund of your choice such as TBA Performing Arts Worker Relief Fund.
Dance schools and studios have also had to close their doors. I’m currently teaching online, and am thankful for the few private students that have chosen to continue their lessons online. Your support is very much appreciated during this difficult time. Please use the contact page to set up a lesson or for more information about my “pay-what-you-can” Zoom group classes which I’m holding while San Francisco’s shelter-in-place order continues.
