Dare To Dance In Public: Six Foot Distance Dances

Dare To Dance In Public: Six Foot Distance Dances

Dare To Dance in Public challenges you….

Making the Private Public: Six Foot Distance Dances

How do we dance in isolation… and how do we connect? How do we create relevance dancing in the privacy of our own homes? What do we feel while being physically limited by an invisible enemy?

In the face of COVID-19, we refuse to be stopped… If anything, perhaps our creativity should be amplified!

So we challenge ourselves and we challenge you...

Conceptualize, choreograph, direct, art direct, & in all ways engage in the creation of a 1-minute or less site-specific dance film inside or outside of the privacy of your home.

Respond directly to the site!

Explore shooting coverage & employing multiple camera angles…. Experiment! Use quick cuts, speed ramps… circle the dance, invite the camera inside of the dance and get inside the feeling of the dance…
Avoid using only frontal coverage!

Feel free to express exactly how you feel about what you're going through — what we're all going through!

At the end of each week, we will select several one minute or less movies to post to our IG/FB, and will be selecting 6 winners to receive cash awards + coverage in Cultural Weekly!

TO SUBMIT: Please send in $6 via PayPal to and e-mail us your video. 
Make sure to include the social handles of you and/or anyone else involved (be it remotely or in person).

*If you post your video on social media, please tag @daretodanceinpublic @ #sixfootdistancedances

Be creative,

Be moving,

Be wild….

Be whoever or however you want to be…

Be prepared to make it PUBLIC!
