10 questions in 10 minutes. Quick insights with the local Bay Area dance community.
Prior to Covid, I had often thought of producing a “(wo)man on the street”-style series where I would chat up dancers and dance supporters outside of classes, performances, auditions, studios, etc.
Since last year that idea has shifted and manifested itself into a 10 minute Zoom interview where we gave absolutely no heads up about potential questions to the interviewees. Ha! They only knew they’d be asked about their dance background and current artistry. And I did ask them to show us their favorite dance move. Enjoy!
