While the circumstances are devastatingly unfortunate, some positives of this unprecedented time are the incredible online resources we are discovering, some which have been made specially available, and many of which have always been available! We have listed a few of these below. As we continue to recognize the ramifications of the COVID-19 virus and the needs of our community, many businesses and organizations are stepping up to lend a hand. We will continue to post resources and updates as we find them.

Do you know of more resources to help our dance community? Post them here in the comments, or email to rachel@alabamadancecouncil.org! Thank you, and lets keep grooving (from a distance)!
