With the project ‚ÄėCovid-Proof Dancing‚Äô, Danspunt aims to encourage dancers, especially folk dancers, to get onto the dancefloor or start dancing again. We will be allowed to dance again in the coming weeks and months, but we will still need to keep a suitable distance from people outside our bubble. The dances for this project have been created or selected and adapted especially for dancing safely at a suitable distance, in large or small groups.¬†¬†

We asked 11 dance leaders and choreographers to create or adapt a dance for us. This has resulted in 9 films featuring a wide range of dances. You will find the films below, with instructions and extra links to download the music and/or a description of the dance.  

The music for these dances was played and arranged by Shillelagh. 

We wish you a summer full of dancing!
