Going Back to Robson During COVID
On June 3 Ralph Escamillan hosted a meeting for Vancouver’s street dance community, along with supporting organizations. We came together to discuss how dancers can more safely return to working and gathering at Robson Square in donwtown Vancouver. As many dancers move their practices outside, we need to ensure that we do this in ways that respect the existing cultures of the places we’re living and dancing in. See Going Back to Robson During COVID for a video, resources and minutes.
