While we may not be able to get together quite yet, we can still unite through dance! “Dorm Dance” is the chance for students to learn a piece of choreography by esteemed professional choreographer, Tiffany Rea-Fisher from their dorm, home, backyard, or wherever they have been staying safe. Students will submit videos of themselves performing the piece which will be then be edited together in order to form UC San Diego’s very own virtual dance company—moving together even while apart! The final video will be live stream premiered to the community on May 27. No prior dance experience necessary, just be prepared to move and have fun!
