Hello, all you members of the great Dance Class of 2020. With the world on lockdown, this hasn't been the graduation season you expected. You likely weren't able to go to prom; your commencement ceremonies have probably been delayed or canceled; and you might not have been able to take your planned-for final bow onstage.
Since you're missing out on so much, we'd like to give you a virtual ovation, to recognize all you've accomplished. And what's the highest honor we can bestow? The cover of Dance Spirit!
Here's the plan:
- If you're a high school or college senior dancer, use this form to submit your information and dance portrait. [Entries are now closed. Thanks for your submissions!]
- Each day during the month of May, we'll create a digital Dance Spirit cover starring one of you, chosen at random—31 covers in total.
- At the end of the month, we'll create a "commencement video" featuring even more of your submitted dance photos.
- 100 of you, selected by lottery, will also receive free one-year subscriptions to the print magazine.
Merde, 2020 graduates, as you dance your way into the future!
