    Reflections: Town Hall and Planetary Bodies

    We are reflecting on the events of the Town Hall for Collective Action and how these moonwalking planets have affected our lives in this episode! Y'all showed up and showed out! Thank you for joining us for both Town Halls!

    [Side Note]: We are tired. Tanks are running low. Rest is needed. So, this is an unedited conversation and we hope you still enjoy the content!

KekeFlorez1989 ,

It’s a new standard.

WWDUD? What would dance union do? This is a real question I ask myself as an artist, performer, dancer, choreographer, community builder, supporter, fan, human. KEEP ON! With the real conversations, killer guests, total vulnerability. Subscribe now, or be ignorant forever.

Desperately needed discussions in dance

If you’re needing something more than interviews with ballerinas, look no further. Melanie and J are able to have fun, crack jokes, and at the same time discuss deeply important topics in and around the field. If dance can change and heal the world, The Dance Union will be leading us.
