The Southwest Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts dance program has dancers practice on group video calls due to the COVID-19 restrictions and distance learning.

Jessica Brooks is the Southwest High School Dance physical education teacher and the instructor for SAVAPA’s dance program. She had years of dance experience before she became a dance teacher for the performing arts program, but she said this is the first time she has taught classes where each student is in their own home.
