Virtual Classes for the month of September!

Our 30th season of dance begins September 8!

 

UPDATE as of January 3, 2020 - We will be offering Virtual Only & Hyrbid classes.

As we continue to navigate through this tough and confusing time of COVID-19, our ultimate goal has remained the same. Although we cannot fully come together as the WSPA Family, we want to give our students the opportunity to continue their training and do what they love.. DANCE! We hope that with both our Hybrid & Virtual classes we can continue to provide our dancers with a sense of community that enables them to stay connected, engaged, and active during this time.

VIRTUAL ONLY CLASSES

(ONLINE ONLY)

 

WSPA teachers will be teaching their classes live via ZOOM, providing our students the opportunity to learn from the comfort of their home.

 

Using ZOOM:

1. Download Zoom.us app on your desktop/laptop and create an account. All students must have a ZOOM account.

 

2. Your child's ZOOM class will begin during their regularly scheduled class time. Use the class invitation link and password provided to you in the email sent by the office to enter the class. 

 

Tips for a successful virtual class:

  • Mute your audio! Background noise can be very disruptive and will drown out both the instructor and music.

  • Speaker View will allow you to see your child's instructor in a large, wider screen.

  • Gallery View will allow you to see the entire class in grid format.

  • Sufficient space to move! We recommend 5’x 5’ area of danceable space with a usable dance floor (see #8).

  • Limit all distractions so your dancer can FOCUS! Inform all family members to steer clear of your dance space.

  • Parent Assistance is up to your discretion, especially if your dance is between the ages of 4-6 years old.

  • Marley Floor Replacement - You can purchase this Shower Pan Liner from Home Depot to lay over your hardwood floor that has a similar texture to Marley, the flooring in traditional dance studios.  It can be taped down with blue tape or it can be rolled up and put away when not in use.

  • Best Floor option for Tappers - You can purchase this Residential Maple Dance Floor Kit as a floor replacement for Tap. You are welcome to browse for more options!

  • Dress code instills discipline as your dancer trains and will be enforced for all classes.

HYBRID CLASSES

(MIX OF IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL)

 

Classes will be divided into two groups of 8 students or less (this allows students to stand 6 ft. apart at all times in the studios). These groups will ROTATE each week coming into class for in-person training and taking class from home through Zoom.

 

Note: Hybrid Classes incorporate BOTH students learning in-person while simultaneously streaming students enrolled in the same class via zoom. This means students will be attending class each week, not one or the other.

 

Tips for a successful hyrbid class:

  • Proper COVID-19 health and safety protocol will be enforced at the school to ensure the well being of our students, parents, and teachers. 

  • Bring your own Yoga Mat for floor exercises. 

  • Outside shoes will not be allowed in the studios - students must bring shoes that they only use for dance to change into.

  • Pack a water bottle! Water fountains/dispenser will not accessible.

  • Students with multiple classes throughout the day are allowed to bring a dance bag, water, and snacks.

  • Dress code instills discipline as your dancer trains and will be enforced for all classes.

  • Dress code instills discipline as your dancer trains and will be enforced for all classes.
