With COVID-19 guidelines changing daily across the globe, dance companies have struggled to return to stages and rehearsal studios. This year’s celebration will recognise the extraordinary resilience of this art form in the face of those challenges, showcasing the breadth of talent performing, choreographing and working on productions today.
