TAKING ONLINE CLASSES AT BALLET ARTS STUDIO

 

Despite the impact of COVID-19, Ballet Arts Studio, as we have been doing for the past two months, will continue to provide an experienced faculty and thoughtful curriculum online, meeting the needs of our dancers.  All our classes have been redesigned to optimize the use of smaller spaces, and our knowledgeable faculty, while still actively correcting students during the online classes, will also be guiding dancers in developing the very useful and beneficial skill of self-correction.  Additionally, online dance classes provide structure during a very unstructured time, normalcy in a positive and familiar context, and physical activity.

All class placement decisions will be made by Ballet Arts Studio faculty.

 

FIRST, if you are not registered at Ballet Arts Studio, please click the "Tuition/Registration" button above, and fill out our registration form for summer.  You do not need to pay the $25 registration fee for our online classes, but you should let us know what class(es) your dancer plans to take.  We also need the form emailed to us, with your signature and date (the signature can be electronic).  Thank you.

 

MAKING PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL

 

Payment for workshops and classes can only be made through PayPal.  CLICK HERE to pay for classes via PayPal.  PayPal can also be accessed from the homepage sidebar on our website.  Please note that you do NOT have to have a PayPal account to use PayPal.  Pay Pal allows you to be a guest, and pay with a credit or debit card.  Usually, you will see a box underneath the PayPal bar that says "Pay with a debit or credit card", "No PayPal account needed" or something similar.  Also, please note that if our PayPal account defaults to $10, you will need to change that amount before making payment.  We ask that you do not use promotions or coupons in PayPal.

 

Please note that if we need to refund money to you, that refund will come via a studio check, and not via PayPal.  Thank you!

 

Also, please access PayPal with a username that we will recognize, so that we can credit your payments.  If we will not easily be able to connect your PayPal username with your dancer’s name as it comes up on the Zoom screen, it is important that you send us an email letting us know who you are, what your username is, and who your dancer is!  Thank you.

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

We will send out an email with a link to join the class on the day that class is happening.  That link will include a password, which you must use to join the class.  Be sure to allow 5-10 minutes before the class begins to get signed in and join the "meeting", which is the class. 

 

It is important to make certain that either your dancer's first or last name is coming up on the Zoom screen once they have signed into their class, so that we can take attendance. 

 

Please click on the “Studio Policies" button above for information concerning the dress and behavior code for Ballet Arts Studio.  Although we have relaxed these rules for our online classes, they are an excellent guide for what is normally expected of dancers in class.
