FAQ

Getting Started with Zoom

All classes will be live-streamed via Zoom. Students need to download Zoom on their computer, phone, or tablet and log-in to Zoom 10 mins before the classes start.

What are required for virtual dance classes?

Connection - a good quality internet connection allows students to see our live-streamed classes smoothly.
Space - make sure there is enough 'dance space' for students so that they won't hurt themselves while dancing around at home.

What to Wear? 

Proper dance attire and ballet slippers are recommended.

What to Bring?

Prepare a chair as your "barre". For those who enroll for Pilates, please prepare a yoga mat or a big towel.

Can I enroll for a single class?

For Small Group Online Classes, students have to attend in the three consecutive weeks. We do not accept drop-in because the course content is designed for a three-week class.

Can parents join the classes?

We welcome parents to dance with their children. If it is the first time for children to join an online class, or they are relatively too young, we encourage parents or adults to accompany them throughout the class.
