UI Dance Virtual Concert Venue

Virtual Dance at the University of Iowa
As the University of Iowa Department of Dance continues a blended approach to its coursework, the decision has been made to hold all performances virtually. The Virtual Dance website serves as a virtual "concert venue" for our students, faculty, and the entire UI Dance community to come together and celebrate the innovative work being done while we practice social distancing.
How to be a Virtual Audience Member
Virtual Dance Concerts go live at 8 PM, Central Standard Time. Follow the link to the concert's home page for specific details about each concert. Prior to the event's start date and time, you can check out preview pages for the works to be presented.
Here are the home pages for our recent events:
When events go live at 8 PM, Central Standard Time, audiences will be directed to a page with the first piece on the program. Once they've finished watching the first piece, a button below the video will direct them to the next piece on the program. Audiences will follow this process through to the end of the concert, when they will be invited to sign a "virtual guest book" on Facebook or Instagram.
Audience members are encouraged to watch videos in HD by clicking on the settings icon (⚙︎) in the video player and selecting 1080p under "Quality."
Video content will remain posted on this website after the virtual concert has "ended." You may also follow the Department of Dance on YouTube and watch the playlist for the Virtual Concert of your choice!
