We are going online!
We have been hard at work developing our online ballet, contemporary and Pilates classes for term 3 or part of it; it depends on how long we will need to be cocooned at home for! While I am sure we will all miss our lovely studios and seeing each other face to face, as creative teachers and students, I am confident that we will make the best out of the spaces we have and we will all continue our ballet practice.
I have already started seeing inspiring videos of professional dancers the world over training online in their bedrooms, kitchens, and living rooms, so we are on the right path!
We will be using Zoom to livestream our classes. This is a free, user friendly platform that allows teachers and students to see each other clearly.
It's a good idea to download Zoom on your computers (not on your phones please), and have a practice session with your friends and family so you familiarise yourselves with it, although it really ease very straightforward.
Classes will be designed to be comfortably performed in a small space, so clear out your favourite spot in your home and have a chair handy for a ballet barre and you're all set!
See you all online!
