TO TAKE AN ADULT CLASS:
First, click the "Tuition/Registration" button above, and fill out our registration form. You do NOT need to pay the $25 registration fee. We do need the form emailed to us, however, with your signature and date; the signature can be electronic.
Then make a PayPal payment of $10 for each class taken, with a clear first and last name attached, well in advance of your class time. Please CLICK HERE to make a PayPal payment.
Then send the studio an email at email@example.com to let us know which adult class or classes you will be taking that day or week. If you have completed those first steps, you will receive an email with the appropriate link and password generally about 15 minutes before the class begins.
You do NOT need to have a PayPal account to use PayPal. PayPal allows you to be a guest, and pay with a credit or debit card. Usually, you will see a box that says "Pay with a debit or credit card" or something similar. Also, our PayPal account generally defaults to “$10”, but you can change that amount before you make the payment if you would like to pay for a number of classes at once. We ask that you do not use promotions or coupons in PayPal. Please also note that once you let us know via email which class you want to take, your PayPal payment of $10 for that class is non-refundable.
Please note that if we need to refund money to you, that refund will come via a studio check, and not via PayPal. Thank you!
Of course, you need to find a location in your home that offers a safe and reasonable amount of space to move, and something very stable to use as a barre for the ballet classes (kitchen counters are usually the best). Specialized footwear is generally not required for our classes. For example, you do NOT need to have tap shoes to take tap, nor do you need ballet shoes to take ballet class.
Be sure to dress in comfortable clothing that you can move easily in. Leotard and tights are great, but certainly not required; tee-shirts, leggings, yoga pants, sweatpants and shorts, etc . . . . are all fine.
As always, classes are subject to a minimum number of attendees.
When signing up for both Zoom and PayPal, please be sure to include a clear first and last name so that we can recognize you for attendance and for the crediting of your payments. Thank you!
INSTRUCTIONS TO DOWNLOAD ZOOM
Smartphone or Tablet: Go to the App Store and search for "Zoom Cloud Meetings". Click "Get" to install the App.
Computer or Laptop: Visit www.zoom.us. You will find a link to sign up (not Sign In) on upper right corner of the screen. Click it and follow the steps to install the software.
Once you have Zoom, and have joined the class, please mute your microphone! This will help everyone taking the class to better focus on the teacher. Settings for smartphones and tablets are at the lower right corner of the screen, and settings for computers and laptops are at the upper right corner of the screen. You are welcome to turn off your video feed during the class, but you must have a clear first and last visible at all times. And remember, the teachers want to help you improve by offering corrections, so we strongly encourage that your video feed remain on during class.
We will send out an email with a link to join the class on the day that class is happening. Each link will include a PASSWORD, which you will need to take the class. We suggest you join the class 5 to 10 minutes early. Please do not share the email or password with other adults who have not yet emailed the studio with an interest in taking class. Of course, do suggest to your friends that they send us an email letting us know of their interest. Thank you!
