Important information for ONLINE class
What do I need to take an online class?
Me and you will use a platform called Zoom. You’ll need a computer, ipad or iphone, and a good internet connection.
Download the zoom app here. It is painless, fast, and free.
If you are new to Zoom please do watch this introductory video from Zoom.
If you have a computer, choose that over the iPad or iPhone. Not only will the sound be better but also you can interact more and see more of others.
If you can, connect your computer/phone to an external speaker for better sound quality.
Make some space to dance. If you are in a shared space, find a room to yourself so you can dance un-self consciously. Or invite your housemates and/or family to join you. Minimize distractions (doorbell/ email/ phone/household appliances/TV) so that you can be as present as possible.
Wear comfortable clothes to move in and have your water bottle nearby.
How do I join online?
Let register here in advance, please. After registration - any Thursday around 6 pm - CET I' ll send you an email including link for Zoom connection.
What time does the dance start?
Dance starts at 7 pm CET. Let connect 5 - 10 minuts earlier and just relax, settle, be.....Please be there no later than 7:15 pm, and stay to the end of the session. Your presence really makes a difference.
How much does it cost?
I am offering my class on a sliding scale donation basis, € 5 - 11+
I'd rather you came and paid whatever feels right, if anything, rather than not come at all.
Will it be recorded?
No, this is an in-the-moment event. Please don't record the music or take any photos of the group.
Some helpful features of Zoom
The ability to MUTE AND UNMUTE – when you are on ‘mute’ it reduces feedback that can occur. It also means you can make as much noise as you want. The Host and co- hosts can mute and unmute everyone.
The ability to have your CAMERA OFF AND ON. Keep it on as it helps build connection. Your presence matters!
The CHAT feature – via the ‘Speech bubble’ icon in the bottom bar. If you are having technical problems, this is the place to go.
The ability to NAME YOURSELF if you haven’t already – click the three dots in your own window.
