Welcome to Term 2 Classes – Online!!
While we are unable to resume classes in the Studio as normal, due to the current restrictions in place for our Safety and Wellbeing, we are lucky to have the technology to provide our dance families with Live Online classes and other resources so that our students do not miss out on all of their much loved activities.
The purpose of providing online classes to students is to give them a sense of normality, community,
consistency and expression. A lot is changing in the current situation and students are faced with
many challenges. In-Step Dance School wants to provide a safe place for students to connect with
their friends, stay active, express themselves and have something to look forward to each week. A
lot of other activities for students are being cancelled or postponed and In-Step wants to provide
students with the opportunity to continue to have access to something they love – dance!
The aim of these classes is not to make great strides in improving technique, but it helps to
maintain technique, flexibility and interest. Students will have access to new and interesting content
and be able to connect with others in their classes.
DELIVERY: We will be using two platforms to provide both Live online classes and other video/learning resources to our dance families – ZOOM and BAND app.
Live Classes: Will be provided using ZOOM (either through your internet browser or via the app on a tablet or mobile device) for READY SET DANCE, READY SET BALLET, Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary & Hip Hop classes. There will be some timetable changes and combined classes however these changes are necessary to enable us to have the technology available and to minimise class clashes for siblings.
Pre-recorded Videos: Will be provided for Little Movers & Groovers, Intermediate Tap, Senior Tap & Adult classes via the BAND app (which is a free download to any tablet or mobile device or can be accessed via your internet browser). This will enable you to enjoy these classes at a time that suits you and your family. Other pre recorded videos will be provided to support other classes as required (especially for those classes that are needing to be shortened).
Special notes for following classes:
AcroDance – We are limited in what we can do for a live class given safety and insurance purposes. Sarah will be providing a stretch and strengthen live class (which is a vital part of their normal AcroDance class anyway) as well as learning the choreography for your end of year Concert dance (minus the tricks for now!). As Miss Sarah will soon be on maternity leave this will enable great preparation for these students.
Pointe Class – We will be liaising with our Pointe students to confirm your options.
Intermediate Tap & Senior Tap – Class Videos will be available for you to participate in when suits you. Regular check ins will be scheduled to go over skills with Miss Kim over the term.
Private lessons – may be booked in for Solo/Duo students. 15 min slots will be available.
These arrangements will be in place until our regular schedule of classes can resume once restrictions are lifted.
TERM 2 ENROLMENTS and PAYMENTS: We have a revised payment fee schedule to reflect the changes to class duration. As the physical studio is closed to our families as per Government Guidelines, Fee payments can ONLY be made by Direct Deposit (internet banking or via ANZ bank) or payment by card over the phone if required. Invoices will be emailed at the end of the first week to allow for families to advise us of any changes to their classes. We understand that families are currently juggling Remote learning and we have some flexibility for students to change classes if required.
We will be offering the following exclusive bonuses to our families:
READY SET DANCE and READY SET BALLET: you may add a bonus day to your normal schedule of classes at no extra cost – so students may attend class twice a week.
BONUS Free Stretch & Strengthen class will be loaded to the BAND app for all students.
BONUS Parents paying for their child’s dance classes may access our Adult Class Videos for free (great way to try out our Adult classes!)
BONUS all students will have free access to bonus dance material/mini classes through the BAND app.
PAYMENT PLANS: If you are experiencing a financial strain, we will be waiving all late fees and offering payment plans to those in need. Please contact us via email to make arrangements before classes begin – we cannot help if you do not let us know.
WITHDRAWAL: If you are not in a position to participate in our Online program, please advise us so that we can HOLD your enrolment until we can return to the studio.
Your continued support in our small business gives us hope that we can survive and continue to provide dance education for years to come. Thank you for supporting us yesterday, today and always. We truly have THE BEST dance family. We brag about you all the time.
WE LOVE YOU!
WE MISS YOU!
