Battery Dance TV

Free live dance classes and programming for the general public by Battery Dance and affiliated artists through a regularly scheduled program.
Faced with the cancellation of its New York City public school dance classes and the postponement of its State Department Nigeria tour, and with its popular dance studios closed, the company staff members went into high gear (from living rooms and kitchens), creating online content.

Offerings will include:

  • morning warmup/stretching/conditioning exercises to start your day off right
  • mid-day classes in contemporary dance with afro, ballet and jazz fusion elements
  • evening classes in varied ballroom styles
  • a daily 4pm short video by dancers performing in their living rooms

Beginning on March 29, Battery Dance will tap into its international network to host Artists Talks every Sunday at 9:00 AM (Eastern Time) with performers based in New York and from around the world.

Battery Dance also plans to expand online programming by including online classes in lighting and production design, arts administration and cultural diplomacy, and short performances by youth around the world.
