Dancing is a medium of expression that can be used to restore immunity for choreographers. The purpose of this paper is to examine the choreographers’ works that have been produced during this pandemic, with a focus on describing the dances during pandemic and other mediums that have been used as a media of expression. The method used in this study is analytical and critical descriptive qualitative. The data were collected trough observation and document study and interviews. The results showed that dancing has become a medium of expression for choreographers during a pandemic. Even though the Covid-19 pandemic was initially a pressure on choreographers in East Java, it had a positive impact, namely encouraging choreographers to develop their imagination in their dances. The pandemic condition that requires them to stay at home has emerged various forms of movements. Even this pandemic condition has encouraged young choreographers to be creative in the virtual world, namely the digital world. Thus, the pandemic has motivated choreographers to produce various forms of contemporary dance works and has developed virtual dance works with virtual performances as well.
