Term 2 Online Classes Information

We are excited to present our Term 2 Timetable complete with some additional changes to the studio for Term 2 as we all navigate through Covid-19 and its effects on our dance families.

 

Why it’s important to keep dancing

 

There are many reasons why we believe you should try and keep up your dance studies during these tough times: 

  • Dance is an excellent form of exercise and exercise helps to keep our brain happy and healthy as well. 

  • Live classes gives us the chance to connect with teachers and friends. 

  • We are able to maintain our technique and memory of steps we have worked hard learning as well as progressing onto news things. 

  • Dance is a great form of stress release and it is something to look forward to and help distract us during these monotonous weeks. 

  • To create, move, extend ourselves and have fun, that is why we dance!

 

Moving forward in Term 2 we are able to provide the following to our dance community:

Live Zoom Classes 

 

The advantages of continuing with our online dance classes:

  • Excellent way for students to get to interact with friends and teachers. 

  • Gives them real time feedback on their technique

  • Keeps them operating on a schedule. 

  • Continuing to work on our syllabus work from RAD ballet, Acrobatic Arts, Babyballet & Glenwood Tap. 

  • Students continue to learn and improve as well as working on retention of all exercises learnt in term 1. 

  • Teachers are able to adapt steps if there are space issues or flooring issues so that no one misses out.


Pre-recorded Classes

 

While the live classes have worked really well for our students in our trial period at the end of Term 1, we are aware that many of our Dance family has limited reception at their home dwellings and thus a pre-recorded video can be a better option for those student allowing them to:

  • Watch at any time and as many times as they like - allowing the dancer to be in the best frame of mind for dancing.

  • Ability to pause and take more time to attempt the step if needed

  • Transfer the recording to a portable device to move to a bigger practice area if the computer area was not sufficient.

  • Ability to download anywhere through our dedicated PPAC Team App

 

Supplementary Items

To assist the students maintain focus and keep them constantly progressing. The studio will be providing the following to all students who do 2 or more classes:

  • Body Conditioning Class held on Saturdays to assist student maintain technique, strength, flexibility and fitness during Term 2

  • Master Classes with some Industry Professionals

  • Along with the live class, students will also be able to access a video of an exercise of the week taught and performed by their teacher for extra practice.
