The Director’s notes:
During the beginning of COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) we notice Deaf people did not have access to same information on what was going on until at least 3 weeks later than hearing communities.
When the pandemic began, government officials began holding daily press briefings to update the public on television and online. Interpreters were not present for Deaf Communities and even when they were provided they were often unqualified and unable to communicate effectively. We understand what it like to be left out so therefore we will do our best to make sure no one feel left out!

As founder of Bay Area International Deaf dance festival –
My dance company lost over 30 thousand dollars worth of opportunity, to give to our dances, business, and community.
We had not give given up.
2020 is hard but please join us for an amazing event!
We are bringing our heart and passion and making it virtual for all to join us!
We love you communities!!!
