Is this available by Zoom or other online platform?

Is it possible to offer this on a Saturday or Sunday? Or, a morning session during the week? Those days and times - for those of us in the Eastern time zone - fall right in the middle of scheduled dance classes/rehearsals.

Check out the dance and film collaboration by UArizona Dance faculty member Autumn Eckman and artist Jonathan Marquis, "Shape-less," in the UAMA's online exhibition "Picturing 2020: A Community Reflects." The exhibition will be on view (virtually) September 26, 2020 - March 28, 2021 at bddy.me/3j1qH4J

"Shape-less" is about stepping into the world after quarantine; and was filmed, socially distant, near the location where the Bighorn Fire broke out—only one day before. The film is set to music by Robert LeGendre. Eckman and Marquis dedicated the film to the community of helpers who contained the fire.

Production of this project was supported in part by a grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts.

Dear Arizona Jazz Dance Showcase Community,

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the trajectory of COVID-19 in the coming months, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Arizona Jazz Dance Showcase 2020.

We are closely following trends in case numbers and health guidelines. The Arizona Jazz Dance Showcase may be rescheduled for Spring 2021. We will continue to send updates as we know more about AJDS future dates.

With deep appreciation & gratitude for all of our AJDS participants, we look forward to our next event.

>>> Faculty Highlight <<< Join us in wishing a happy retirement to Associate Professor AMY ERNST!
Ms. Ernst’s career began as a featured dancer, touring internationally with the Lewitzky dance company for over a decade. After her work with the company, Amy was hired by the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Inglewood, California as a physical therapist for three and a half years. In 1995, after receiving her MFA in dance from the University of Washington-Seattle and teaching at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Ms. Ernst joined the UA School of Dance faculty. Amy has shared her insight and wisdom of dance with generations of young artists, teaching all levels of Modern Dance Technique and Choreography, Dance Injury Prevention, Dance Kinesiology, and Biomechanics for Dance.
During her time at the University of Arizona, Amy was a teacher, a choreographer, a mentor, a friend, and most importantly, family.
Congratulations Amy! We can’t thank you enough! 💗
