Welcome to our second Sunday Online class.
Yes, something is lost when we cannot be in the same room together, but those of us who have danced online have found unexpected rewards, -not the least being connection to dancers in distant places and from distant periods of life.
So come and join us at 3pm EDT (Noon in California, 8pm in UK)
Length of class 1.25 hours approx (After we see how this one goes, we’ll have a better idea)

Once registered, you should receive a Confirmation email with some further instructions and a link to join the Zoom Meeting. (If you do not receive confirmation, email me at email@example.com.)
Once in the meeting you will receive a link to the Soundcloud Playlist (via the ‘Chat’ function)
For those new to the experience, please read the advice below.
Being in community: Unless your living room is in real chaos (children creating mayhem etc), do be visible. Join with video as well as audio and be present with your fellow dancers. Place the camera where a good portion of your space is visible (including some floor if possible).
For Dancing: Have water ready and minimize distractions (especially noise).Think of your living room as a dance studio. Clear as much space as you can to dance: Clear floor space including rugs or carpet that could slip and move anything your arms might hit. Get some fresh air and do some stretching before dance if you can.
Technical stuff: Close as many unwanted programs/notifications/phones etc as you can. Zoom works best on desktop or laptop. If you use on phone or pad you should download the app in advance (I’m told). If you have a second device, use it for the Soundcloud audio if you can connect it to speakers. Using two devices may improve the signal.
