Safety:
Teaching and taking dance classes via Zoom can be a challenge and, of course, we want to make it a fun and safe experience for all! Please be sure that your dancer has ample room to move, is dancing on a safe flooring surface, does not have too much furniture around them so as to avoid bumping into it and is not eating during class. And, while it may seem obvious to us, please remind your dancer that it is not safe to dance on top of tables, chairs, beds, sofas, etc.

Technology:
Classes will be taught using zoom which most are quite familiar with by now. For safety purposes, we typically require a waiting room for classes and, therefore, if your dancer is late to class, the teacher may not see that they are in the waiting room as we are often standing and teaching further away from the screen to notice so please allow ample time to log in to class. Late dancers may not be admitted to class.

While younger students may need some assistance logging in and staying on task during class, for our older students, it is preferable that family members allow students the time and space to participate in class independently with minimal interruption.
