When recent events caused all her regularly scheduled classes and gigs around the San Francisco Bay Area to be cancelled, she decided to bring her classes online in the most engaging and interactive way possible — using Facebook Live. We are excited to offer another series of classes this week for kids seven and under — though the classes are ideally suited for kids three to six, we’ve had many people enjoy these live streamed classes with older or younger kids.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, all live performances and gatherings of any kind, have been canceled. Social distancing has left us all feeling extremely secluded and possibly disconnected from the world. We wanted to find a way to bring us all together during a time that seems like the world wants us to separate. Also, COVID-19 has left countless performance artists without income. As freelance artists, our livelihood depends on performances. Even though these gigs have been canceled, rent and bills are still due. We decided to put together an online festival as a way to raise money for freelance artists, including ourselves, to help with these financial burdens. This festival is a way to experience incredible live art and connect with festival-goers without having to be worried about catching anything! Also, if you want to, you will be able to communicate with other festival goers and the artists through chatting on livestream!
