Dance diplomacy is crucial in the age of COVID. The joy that movement brings is always something special, however, it is extremely important to bring this joy when people are in need of extra light. My experience with Move-Ex this year has made me realize just how special the connection through movement can be, regardless of if that connection is virtual or not.
