Good Morning CORE Families,
We hope you all had an amazing Christmas!! We can’t wait to see you online next week to hear about how amazing your Christmas was!!
Here are just a few notes for this week:
Classes Return Monday January 4th ONLINE
-our schedule will remain the exact same
-same days, same times & same teachers
-all classes will be run on Zoom
-yes, it’s a change but it’s super fun!
-our internet is working much better now at the studio
-we can see the kids, talk to the kids and keep working on their skills
-this will give the kids some much needed time with their friends and to have some fun with our amazing teachers!!
Where to find your Zoom class links
-go to your parent portal in Dance Studio Pro
-click on ACCOUNT
-click on STUDENTS
-select your child
-click on whatever CLASS you need the link for
-all the links and meeting codes are listed there
-please e-mail me if you need any assistance with this
Where to find space at home
-go ahead, move some furniture!! LOL
-you have one week to create a dancing space that works 🙂
-Ballet works really well in the kitchen so the kids can use the counter as a ballet barre. Holding onto a chair works really well too.
-Tap works really well in the basement or on a floor that won’t scratch! I would recommend getting a piece of wood for the kids to tap on if you’re worried about scratching your floors!! I can send you info on this if you like!
-Acro will be mostly conditioning and basic skills until we’re back in the studio. For kids under 8, it would be helpful if a parent/guarduan is close by to spot or to be there for safety.
-The rest of the styles are good pretty much anywhere. We adapt what we’re teaching based on the kids space. We won’t be doing running flying leaps through the entire house!! LOL We will keep our classes pretty contained as we know space is limited at home. We had lots of fun with this over quarantine last time and we will do the same this time!! We just can’t wait to see them … in some way!!!
-if you have weak internet at home (I do), you can run an ethernet cable from your modem right to your device. You can get the cables and adapters pretty cheap. This worked so well for me at home!! Wifi is great but a hard wired connection is usually better.
-we are going to run our classes on a lower resolution so they don’t take up too much bandwidth
-it does help a lot if others are offline during the class (I know that’s hard)
-it does help if all other apps on the device are closed down
Hopefully this lockdown won’t be too long and we’ll be back in the studio dancing in no time!! Please try Zoom!! I think it will be very important for the kids to see their friends and teachers smiling faces 🙂
Enjoy the rest of your break and we can’t wait to see you online next Monday!!
