While the coronavirus pandemic has many confined to their homes, it won’t stop these students from dancing.

The Windermere Preparatory School Advanced Choreography/Performance class showed the show must go on by posting a video to Twitter demonstrating how its students keep their dance skills sharp while using video chat functionality.

The video showed their dance teacher Gilliane Hadley leading a group of nine students through a routine.

“Adapt, Improvise, & Overcome. Here is just one example of our WPS dance students making space in their homes to keep dancing. We're in this together! #keepmoving #keepdancing #BetterTogether,” the tweet said.

The girls can been seen rehearsing dance steps over and over again as their teacher calls out the counts. One student can be heard asking a question when she needed clarification.

Kudos to the dancers for using this downtime to stay sharp.

Stay safe and keep up the social-distancing dancing.
