AIM Classes and Workshops Have Gone Virtual!

Dance for Life

The mission of Arts in Medicine has always been to connect with the hospital community and beyond around the arts in health. Our teams are proud to present new ways of connection to those who have limited access to in-person engagements through virtual live-streaming, prerecorded classes and workshops, and other online resources.

We are now able to host specific classes online, which are viewable in real-time on your computer, tablet, or mobile device!

The following classes are available via Zoom, a video conferencing platform that is free to use and allows our team to teach classes in real-time (click here for a simple guide to using Zoom):
