    With social distancing and stay-at-home orders as a backdrop, the “hello how are we” dance project investigates what this question means today and expresses this theme through dance.

Incredibly proud of these student producers

This has been an incredibly useful opportunity for students at Wayne State University to develop an entirely new set of soft and hard skills. The hosts have a great command of the format, have already shared excellent content, and invited incredibly interesting guests to share their experiences of creating art during a global pandemic. I’d recommend anyone with an interest in the arts to subscribe and download.
