Zoom Classes at Simply Ballet

Child learning ballet online

Due to the new SA Government restriction, Simply Ballet classes will be pirouetting into your living room!

We’re here to keep you fit an entertained during this (hopefully short!) lockdown.    We will be back in person as soon as regulations allow and make-up classes will be scheduled wherever possible.

In the meantime…

Classes from Tuesday 20/7 to Tuesday 27/7 will be held on Zoom.  Classes will be slightly reduced in length due to the nature of online learning.  Most classes will commence at their regular time, but may finish slightly earlier.  Some classes may also be combined.  Please check the revised Term 3 2021 Zoom Class Schedule.

If you are a current student, you will be sent an email with a link to your current level’s Zoom class options.  You may attend any Zoom classes that you are able to.  Below are some FAQ’s about Zoom and online dance classes to help with set-up and online learning for dance.

We appreciate your understanding and patience in these changing times.  You hope you will be able to Jeté back through our open doors as soon as possible!

Kind regards,

Helen Cooper

FAQ's

Do I need a Zoom account or app?

No – you can access the Zoom Meeting using a web browser. Follow these instructions on how to join a Zoom meeting (including video instructions)

Which classes are affected?

Currently, all classes up until Tuesday 27/7 are affected. We will let you know about Saturday classes as soon as we are given more information from the Government.

How do I access classes?

You will be sent a Zoom link for classes that are available for your current level. If you wish to access other levels, please contact us.

What kind of space do I need at home?

You’ll need a few square meters of space where you can move freely without banging into walls or other objects. We suggest keeping pets and siblings away if possible – A spare bedroom can often be a great solution!

Do I need any special equipment?

You will need a device on which you can access a web browser. This could be a computer, a mobile phone, or a tablet.  If your level involves Barre work, you may wish to find a chair or countertop you can use as a temporary barre

Where can I find help with Zoom?

Zoom has great online help here

Do I have to wear my dancewear?

It would be really great if you still wore your dancewear. Even though these classes are online, your teacher will still give correction and feedback on technique to keep you learning and progressing.
