Dance students at UW-Stevens Point are finding a creative way to finish out their final project.

When students in Dance 304 were forced to go home for the year, they got creative and came up with a video that captures the time we’re living through, while also showcasing what they’ve learned in the program. Because they couldn’t dance together, they created an outdoor, socially distanced piece.

“All of a sudden when we found out we wouldn’t be going back, I think that was a shock to all of us, and we’re like, ‘Wait, I thought I still had 8 more weeks,’” said senior Megan Carver, who worked on editing the video together for her class.

They’re having to adapt to practicing in spaces they never thought could be used for dance class.
