Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our 2020 season was cut short. We sadly lost  the chance to perform the choreography which our dancers had spent the semester developing with our wonderful guest artist Vicky Shick. However, using footage from our rehearsals and from meetings that took place over Zoom after the start of the pandemic, Vicky and our own Kyla Arsadjaja (SOA ‘20) were able to put together the next-best thing. We hope you enjoy.
