Register in advance for this class:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the class.
What is an online class?
We will use Zoom, it can be accessed from a computer, iPad or iPhone. If you have a computer, choose that over the iPad or iPhone, not only will the sound be better but also you can interact more and see more of others.
At the beginning of the class time, click the Zoom Meeting ID (further down in this email)
This will take you to a window where each of us can see each other in a grid on the computer. This link takes you to a short video introduction to joining a Zoom Meeting: https://youtu.be/
The class time is 7.30–9.30pm.
Come at 7.15pm to settle in, especially if you are new to this technology to make sure your video and audio is working.
What do I need?
✧ You’ll need a computer, ipad or iphone, a good internet connection. If you have speakers, plug them in.
✧ Some space to dance. Clear a space, you might make it lovely with candles or artwork or whatever makes it feel welcoming for you. If you are in a shared space you might find a room to yourself so you can dive into your own dance unselfconsciously. Or invite your friends/family to join you.
✧ Minimise other distractions (ie phone / notifications on your device) so that you can be as present in the dance as possible.
✧ Wear comfy clothes to move in
✧Bring some water or a cup of tea.
✧Perhaps bring a blanket to wrap yourself up after dancing. The last half an hour of the class will be check-in talking, bring something to keep warm.
What will happen?
We’ll begin with a short orientation to Zoom, to settle into the technology with ways to use it that work for online dancing.
There will be a warm-up, an introduction to the dance and then we’ll go into the Wave: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. After dancing we’ll have check-in in small groups and we’ll be finished by 9.30pm.
