Despite cancelling the remainder of its 2019-20 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Celebrity Series of Boston is preparing for the shows to go on this fall.

The non-profit performing arts presenter on Tuesday announced its 2020-21 season, which begins with a five-day social dance extravaganza on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in September.

In a press release, the organization said that it plants to move forward with the season “as-is” for now, but will follow local, state, and federal guidelines in regards to any cancellations or postponements.

Gary Dunning, president and executive director of the Celebrity Series of Boston, said in a press release that he believes arts could be a “salvation” for a community threatened by COVID-19.

“Our health, for sure, but also our sense of community, is threatened,” Dunning said. “I do believe, however, that we will gather again in celebration of live performance. I believe that the arts can be a salvation after this time of lost community. In that spirit, we offer the 2020-2021 season to you. We hope it sparks a light in your day, and gives reason to pause and be grateful for the wealth of art we will one day be able to embrace together.”

The Celebrity Series season begins in the fall with the return of Let’s Dance Boston!, a five-day free, outdoor music and dance party with five live bands and expert dance instructors. Other highlights during the season include actor Alan Cumming and NPR journalist Ari Shapiro performing “Och & Oy, A Considered Cabaret” on Oct. 18 at Sanders Theatre; Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile, and guest vocalist Aoife O’Donovan in “Not Our First Goat Rodeo” at Symphony Hall on Oct. 26; Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and salsa icon Rubén Blades performing big-band versions of holiday classics on Dec. 12 at the Berklee Performance Center; and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater performing from April 29 to May 2, 2021, at the Boch Center Wang Theatre.

Subscription sales (any order with three or more events), will begin at 9 a.m. on May 6 on the Celebrity Series website, while tickets for individual events will begin on Monday, Sept. 14.
