Core Dance closed its Decatur studio in March and its professional dance company members have been in self-isolation. But at 4 p.m. Saturday, they'll perform their dance work for the Georgia coast, "Dancing for Our Lives," and broadcast it live via the Core Dance Facebook page facebook.com/coredance and on the National Water Dance site at nwdprojects.org. Because of the current need for social distancing, the dancers will all be contributing from their own homes.
The National Water Dance project was created to promote dance as a voice for environmental awareness. Dance companies and individuals from across the nation will be participating. There are instructions on the National Water Dance website for anyone who wants to be a part of the event, and the page includes shared movement phrases for the beginning and end of the dance that are meant to connect all who join in.
