In this time of crisis we are mobilizing DanceTelevision's entire pool of assets (staff, millions of social media followers, commercial distribution deals, and technological solutions) in order to support the global medical care emergency response,  and our dance events industry co-workers. We are programming an ambitious schedule of round-the-clock broadcasts on the special #StayHomeFestival channel that is simultaneously shared and cross-posted to millions social media followers.

Emergency medical care organizations

World Health Organization

Donations support WHO’s work to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments.

International Committee of the Red Cross

COVID-19 represents a dramatic threat to life in war-torn countries. The impact of an outbreak of the virus could be nothing short of catastrophic. Support the Red Cross to continue working to help those in need. We are fighting to prevent the spread of this disease by supporting vital health care centers and providing crucial items such as soap and masks.


UNICEF is committed to continuing to deliver assistance to children across the areas affected by COVID-19 and is working with governments and implementing partners to find solutions to logistical and operational constraints to ensure children in need continue to receive humanitarian assistance.

Event & Music industry aid

Spotify Music Relief

The Spotify COVID-19 Music Relief project has been created to amplify the efforts of organizations that focus on helping those most in need, beginning with those listed below. Spotify is making a donation to these organizations and will match donations made via this page dollar for dollar up to a collective total of $10 million.

MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund

In recent weeks, COVID-19 has devastated our music community, leaving thousands of music creators and professionals without work and an uncertain future. But we have the power to help. The Recording Academy® and its affiliated charitable foundation MusiCares® have established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help our peers in the music community affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Partners' initiatives

Housepitality Crew Relief Support (San Francisco)

This situation is hitting the crew behind this production pretty hard. It takes a small village to put on this weekly event. Our profile picture only shows part of our crew. We are 12 in total including our door managers. A few of us have 'regular jobs' and are still employed but most of us are contractors or full time service industry folks who are deeply financially affected by this sudden shift. It's really eye opening and scary how fast our income streams disappeared.
