The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted not only the academic life of our students, but also the extracurricular activities that they usually participate in. Just like the hybrid learning to which Brooklyn Friends School has adapted, the dance community at BFS has also found innovative ways to continue dancing in a virtual environment. The IB Dance program at Brooklyn Friends School aims to provide a rigorous and academic study of different dance styles. The recent IB Dance Showcase included solos created by the IB I Dance class and a group piece created by the IB II Dance class. On this episode of The Life, we interview two IB Dance students, Amaya H. ’22 and Evelyn Y. ’21, to learn more about how COVID has impacted their dance lives.
