Cirque du Soleil Files for Bankruptcy.  Article here.    One article said to help keep the employees paid, so I hope those dance trained performers are protected.

At least one company is attempting to creatively have a season this fall/winter, including Nutcracker...

Royal Winnipeg Ballet will be starting their season with Nut in December.  At this time, Manitoba is in "stage 4" of reopening, which does allow limited seating in theaters, so there is hope that this may actually happen.  The organization has attempted to help some of their dancers by giving them teaching/assisting jobs in both the professional and recreational division summer programs, so that they can earn at least some income.
