DSBPA NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT NOW

ONLINE STUDY & RECREATION

Virtual Training

As we move into Phase 2.5 of reopening (which allows in-studio classes) we're beginning our Hybrid Training Program, which offers private and semi-private virtual and/or in-person classes with limited spots for those looking to get back to the studio. 

 

However, many of our classes will still be available as virtual-only options if you would prefer to remain home. This page is for those virtual-only classes.

Virtual Dance Training Offerings

FALL 2020

Our small class sizes provide individualized instruction in both virtual & in-studio training.

 

Virtual classes are taught via Zoom; once registered, you will be able to access your class' individual Zoom link through your account in JackRabbit, our class registration system. 

Zoom Tips

  • You'll need a free Zoom account to access our online classes. (The 40 min limit for free accounts does not apply, since DSBPA is “hosting” these classes.) Sign up here: https://zoom.us
     

  • Try to log on at least five or ten minutes early; technology can be unpredictable, so you'll want the extra time to get set up. And we'd love to take a minute to say hello to everyone before class begins.
     

  • Keep your video ON and your audio OFF -- it's very easy for background noise to interfere with class (the mute button will be at the bottom of your screen).
     

  • Your teacher should tell you which method they prefer for students to ask questions: either unmuting the microphone to ask or submitting a question via chat. Please use our best class etiquette in these instances.
     

  • At the end of class, you’ll click “Leave Meeting” in the lower right corner of the screen.

Tips for taking classes from home

  • Make sure that you have some space to move safely. 
     

  • If you are taking ballet try to find a chair, wall, or window sill to work as a ballet barre. 
     

  • Adjust the view of your dance space: Make sure your device is set up in a way that your body is as visible as possible, so your teacher can make corrections as necessary. 
     

  • Wear clothing that allows the instructor to see your movements: leotard or leggings/shorts and appropriate footwear, if possible. Ballet classes can be taken in socks or ballet flats, while Modern classes can be taken barefoot.
     

  • Your teachers will help to guide you as well as you go along.

Durham School for Ballet & the Performing Arts’ aim is to provide a space for the cultivation of creativity through dance. Dance is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun. Our role as Dance Educators is to help children climb their own mountains.
