Students of a university in New York were left puzzled after they received a video of their dean dancing in response to their request for a tuition refund due to classes being suspended in view of the coronavirus lockdown.

In an email, the dean of Tisch School of Arts, Allyson Green, informed the students that they would not receive a refund and attached a video of herself dancing to ‘Losing My Religion’ by American rock band R.E.M.

“The Dean of Tisch sent this as an attachment to the email saying they won’t give us our money back. Embarrassing,” wrote a student of the university Michael Price while sharing the video. “In the text of the email, she invited us to ‘dance along’ with her,” he added.
