An Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Friends and Supporters of Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company,

In these times of the COVID-19 global health crisis, Wylliams/Henry must regretfully postpone our May concert, our participation in the Spring To Dance Festival in May, and Community Classes.

All of us at Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company share your concern about the unsettling events happening in our community and around the world. To those personally affected by the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus, we will stay close to you in spirit.

It is a challenging time and none of us can predict what’s around the corner. Out of abundant caution, we will not be presenting our spring concert in May. Although disappointing, our priority remains the care and safety of our patrons, artists, students, and staff.

In the meantime, we invite you to visit our website at and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates and information on the upcoming New Dance Partners (Sept. 18 & 19, 2020) and Fall Concert (Oct. 2 & 3, 2020). We are still planning to have a Pre-Professional/Professional Dance Workshop in August with dates to be announced.

We, just like all of you, hope for a steady recovery from this virus. We remain hopeful in our hearts and have prepared some videos of the Company’s highlights and hallmark works throughout our Instagram and Facebook, to lift your spirits. We believe experiencing dance and the arts can transform difficult times and help reminds us of the beauty and creativity in our world.

You can engage with us on social media and share in the excitement of our upcoming 2020-2021 season as it takes shape. And, please, consider gifting a donation,, to ensure that we come back as strong as ever!

Warm Regards,
Mary Pat Henry
Founder/Artistic Director
