Online Classes: Creating Virtual Space

These classes and tutorials are content produced by independent artists and groups—BAX community members—sharing their skills and time with others amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing.

For a list of organizations, centers, and other independent artists offering online classes please visit NYC Dance Week’s listing at

If you are able, please donate to these artists and groups for the work they are making and sharing. Many artists, performers, educators, cultural workers, community organizations, and arts education centers are losing resources and funding. In this time of emergent forms and connections, please help us sustain each other and our communities.
