Dancing Together Six-Feet Apart – Our campaign to support mental health and connect dancers everywhere!
Pictured above, our YDA dancers are wearing our 100% cotton hand drawn and designed t-shirt, created by one of our own students. The crop t-shirt is available in white or black. Limited quantities are available in size: XS (7-11 years), SM (10-14 years), MED (14 years & up). A portion of the proceeds from each shirt sale will be donated to Children’s Mental Health Ontario.
The current pandemic has resulted in unprecedented uncertainty and changes to our daily routines and coping strategies. The implications of social distancing practices and the uncertainty of when life can return to normal is affecting the physical and emotional health of children and adults everywhere.
Dancers, who have been most affected by the social-distancing restrictions and theatre closures, are collectively adapting to maintain their motivation and continue their training. Online classes and virtual platforms are by no means a replacement for in-studio dance classes, but we are a part of an industry reinventing itself in the face of unprecedented obstacles.
Although we are required to dance six-feet apart, dancers around the world have been united in a common cause; to be able to continue to train and express ourselves through our passion for dance.
We are launching a new campaign to support mental health and connect dancers everywhere. Our t-shirt campaign “Dancing Together Six-Feet Apart” was designed and hand-drawn by one of our dance students, Karley Ogston, who was inspired by a comment made by her grandmother, Angela Tucker, the owner of York Dance Academy.
