COVID-19 Financial Resources for the Philadelphia Dance Community

by Mira Treatman

In the months since COVID-19 was named a global pandemic,  significant amounts of information     and resources have become available. Seemingly every day a new opportunity pops up or an addendum is added to the CARES Act. In     an effort to continue providing information services  to Philadelphia's dance communities, thINKingDANCE will maintain the  table below with just financial resources. Kat J, Sullivan will continue to update   her article,  COVID-19 and Dance: Resources to Keep Us Moving, with more general information and resources. We   hope that this article dedicated to financial resources will help you navigate the weeks and months to come.
