Emergency Preparedness with Carol Foster
July 27, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This workshop will prepare the dancer, dance companies, and the dance community for the unexpected emergencies that are happening around us daily. From natural disasters to the ongoing effects of climate change, Carol will prepare us for what’s to come and the lingering consequences of what has preceded us. Through economic turmoil and national tragedies, how can you be best prepared and how can you plant the seeds to thrive ahead? Carol will go through contingency plans, sources of aid, and re-opening in a post-Pandemic world.
1:1 Sessions August 1 – 7
Carol will offer individual sessions for those needing extra help for specific problems. As dancers and organizations often have struggles unique to them, she will offer aid and advice from her years of expertise and planning.
