Preparing your Space
 

You need at least a 6' by 6' space for a successful class. If you have less space than that please let your instructor know.

Flooring: 

Having a dance flooring is ideal, but ultimately dancing on the rug in the living room, in the garage or in the kitchen will be just fine!  If you are looking to put in a floor we suggest any of the following options.

  • plywood (purchase from home depot & lay on top of your surface)

  • Interlocking foam floor tiles - amazon or home depot

Items Needed:

Have these items ready before starting class, sit them on the side of your space!

  • Yoga blocks (amazon/target)

    • Home Alternative: couch pillows​

  • Ballet Barre or equivalent (amazon, home depot DIY)

    • Home Alternative: Dinning Room Chair​

  • Make sure your name is correct for quick attendance

  • Have your camera set up so that your entire body can be seen from the side and/or front.

  • Have your space cleared of distractions (this includes family members)

    • Parents need only to participate if an instructor asks​

  • Have all your items ready and off to the side

  • Have a water bottle and snack (if in multiple classes in a row) off to the side

    • No eating/drinking allowed during class time unless instructor gives permission

  • No sitting in class unless given permission, always be ready to move

  • Apply corrections, we can see you at all times even if you cannot see us

  • Questions - raise your hand so we can see that you have one, if we miss it you are welcome to unmute yourself and ask for your instructors attention.

  • No cell phones or chat (to other students) allowed

  • No leaving the screen 

    • If you need to go to the bathroom, ask your instructor (go before class)

  • Positive attitude is EVERYTHING!
