Transcript for Backyard ballet keeps dancing during pandemic
We are back now with a pandemic pirouette. The ballet company determined to keep dancing through the quarantine, shining a light on the importance of art in this and every moment. Think about it there must be higher love down in the heart This is our creative concept for merging ballet with rock music, art and cinema. We're taking ballet out of the box and trying to make it more accessible and relatable to mainstream audiences. We're all kind of working on a project and we had a film coming out. When the pandemic hit, we were already here in San Diego working for a new film, short film. When it hit, we kind of decided to get in together. We made the decision to lock down together, to hunker down together to feel safe, continuing to dance together. That was a decision that we made and we've committed to.

Performing arts are suffering at the moment. Just for something people can look forward to. We call it the new way of touring. It's right from my backyard. We can reach global audiences and we've given over 130 free live-stream performances from my backyard. We call it our backyard ballet series. We've been doing it for six months. We've been performing all across the United States. Different circumstances. The three of us feel that art provides a sense of community, a sense of humanity. As ballet dancers, that's our call to duty right now. A woman wrote to me last week and she said you remind me there is beauty in this world. Because we are globally going through difficult times, we're trying to be an escape. The San Diego mayor, Kevin Faulkner, reached out to us to see if we would be interested in being on his segment. He was very impressed. He featured us on his segment back in April. We were really proud of that. Generally all the performing artists, we want to be an example and inspire people to continue to do what they do and don't give up. Continue because one day everything will be open again and you will be thankful. Bring me a higher love You were a -- I was a gymnast, not a ballerina. I appreciate ballet. It's beautiful.
