Singers, dancers, actors and comics are all stuck at home during the coronavirus outbreak too, so many of them are taking to social media to offer free classes and entertainment and boost spirits in these trying times.
Here's a sampling of what's available as of the morning of March 18. Some of these are one-day only, some of them look to be scheduled as ongoing events.
If you are an artist planning to offer free online performances or classes, or represent one who does, drop us a line at email@example.com to be added to this list.
