In these troubling times, some of us are faced with extra time on our hands. As dancers and performers, many of us are taking advantage of the host of virtual classes that have sprung up online since social distancing measures took hold. There’s been a burst of creativity and connection, which is heart-warming to see.
For those of us who would have been at the Victorian Dance Festival (VDF) this past weekend, the event organisers have set up an online VIP Access Portal, full of exclusive content for attendees to enjoy while we wait for October to roll around. There are class videos with VDF instructors, special offers to redeem from the VDF sponsors, AND the brand new VDF Podcast, brought to you by the team at Dance Informa, and Aussie dancewear icon Energetiks.
Host Lara Bianca Pilcher speaks to some of the VDF faculty about their tips for managing through the Covid-19 crisis, how they keep their bodies moving and their excitement for VDF in October. From VDF Artistic Director Yvette Lee to instructors across all genres of dance, there are episodes with some of your favourite industry leaders to enjoy.
VDF ticket-holders can tune in to episodes one, two, three and four now, and keep a look out for new episodes every week. Lara has already chatted with Yvette Lee, Trevor Santos, Tim Podesta and Zoee Marsh – who will be next?
To access The VDF Podcast, head to the VDF VIP Access Portal. Don’t have your access code? Remember that Portal Entry is for Energetiks VDF Ticket Holders only. Codes were sent via email, so if you can’t find your email, please get in touch!
