HOW DOES ‘ZOOM’ WORK?
Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service. Once you have booked onto the course, all information and instructions will be emailed to you, including a simple step-by-step guide on how to download Zoom Cloud in advance of the course and how to access the masterclass on the day. We recommend you read the information offered on Zoom, and ensure you have the ability and confidence to use the service before the workshops commence.
DO I NEED INTERNET ACCESS?
Yes. You will need a strong Wifi connection for the best experience. Using an ethernet cable to ‘hard wire’ your internet into a computer could offer further stability and speed.
WHAT DEVICE SHOULD I USE?
We recommend that you use a device with the largest screen available. A desktop or laptop is ideal (phones and tablets can be too small to see clearly) Some people may be able to mirror their computer screen to their TV for an even better view.
WILL I BE SEEN AND HEARD?
All participant’s have the choice to have their cameras disabled throughout. You will only be able to see tutor and any participants in the class who choose to have their camera on. You will be asked to mute your mic throughout the class.
HOW CAN I ASK QUESTIONS?
Participants will be able to talk directly to the tutor for the Q&A at the end of the session or you can type you comments and questions directly to the tutor.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear what you would normally wear to a dance class. Appropriate clothing that you can move easily and safely in. Trainers or dance shoes – we do not recommend dancing in socks or bare feet, even on carpet. Remove all jewellery, and tie up long hair off the face.
HOW MUCH SPACE DO I NEED?
We understand that space is going to be limited. Choreography will be designed to keep routines as compact as possible. However, it is important that your space is clear and tidy. Please consider potential risks, choose an appropriate space and remove any hazards. We also know pets can get excited when you’re dancing and want to get involved, but please keep them away to avoid tripping.
