Debbie Allen shared a replay of her infamous virtual dance classes that she hosts weekly on Instagram as celebrity choreographer, Jaquel Knight joined her.


Since the closure of Debbie Allen's dance studio, the "Debbie Allen Dance Academy," she has joined forces with other members of the dance community to provide virtual dance classes.

In an interview with CNN, Debbie revealed that her classes are a weekly wellness program that helps people quarantined in their home find a healthy outlet for physical activity.


By using dance to get through the days, Debbie called it a "healing experience" that she considered being an important experience for people willing to engage in her classes, she explained:

"I know dance is not listed on the list of what's essential right now, but you know, this kind of artistic spirit, it really is."


Recently, Debbie shared her message of healing through dance with a special afternoon dance session; she said, "this week, let's dance for the healing of our world."

Debbie exuded energy in a video she posted while wearing a yellow ensemble, complete with a head wrap. She encouraged her fans to join her live session to "move, groove and sweat."


In a follow-up post, Debbie captioned, "let's dance to heal," she shared a replay of herself and celebrity choreography, Jaquel Knight, warming up before showing off their impressive dance moves.

Debbie started off her video by addressing the nationwide protest against racial injustice and expressed her support for the movements and emphasized the need for peace. She expressed her hope that the session would help alleviate a lot of the frustrations people were feeling at the moment.


"So much joy in your expressions! And the music! Music heals from the soul...Yes!!!! Thank you," gushed one fan, who had enjoyed the session.

One parent shared their child's excitement about wanting to get back to her academy; they commented, "Journee can't wait to get back to dance." Another person thanked her for the positive experience.
