Join us for LIVE online classes through GOOGLE MEET!
Get the schedule and details below:
GOOGLE MEET is a free app/online download. If you’d like to use your phone or tablet you can download the app through your Google Playstore or Apple App Store. If you are using your computer, you can download here: www.googlemeet.com. You will need to have this app in order to participate in the class. This allows everyone to see each other and the teacher to answer any questions you have while also ensuring you are dancing safely and correctly. Classes will be 30-45 minutes, depending on the level and style. Assuming you are dancing in your bedroom, basement, living room, etc. we can’t include things like grand allegro or tumbling, but will do our best to give you a complete class. All dancers can take classes at their level or below, but may NOT take a class at a higher level as we don’t want you to practice incorrectly or hurt yourself.
What to wear: Dancers can wear whatever is comfortable to move in. If you’d like to put on leotard and tights to have some “normalcy” during this time, feel free! If you want to wear yoga pants and a t-shirt, that is fine too. Please avoid super short shorts (because we can see you at home) and baggy pants (because we can’t offer any corrections without seeing your legs). Typical dance shoes are best.
What you need:
- Tiny Toes Dance Classes: Find any space that you can move around without too much around you. If the weather gets nice, feel free to dance outside!
- Ballet classes (level 1 & up): find something to use as a barre such as a wall, counter, or chair. Ballet barres are traditionally 42-44” off the ground. You can do ballet on carpet or hardwood/laminate, just make sure you won’t kick anything.
- Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop class: Find a space that you can lay on the ground comfortably and move around without too much around you.
- Tap Classes: If possible, find any floor in your house that isn’t carpet. Laminate, hard wood, etc. work best. If you have a piece plywood about 2 feet by 2 feet this could protect your floors. Tile is difficult and sometimes too slippery.
All classes have been modified to accommodate a smaller space than the traditional dance studio, so you should be able to take class in your bedroom (great excuse to clean your room!), basement, family room, or kitchen.
