Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need special software?
In order to participate fully, you will need a device with a camera and microphone.
In the event your class incorporates the Zoom platform, you may be prompted to download Zoom when you click the link for your first class. Sign up for Zoom is free. We recommend accessing Zoom ahead of time at zoom.us to make sure you’re familiar and comfortable. Other than that, no special software is needed.

How long are livestream and virtual classes?
While you should expect some fluctuation depending on the type of content and discipline, each virtual class’s duration will be listed when you register.
What kind of floor is safe for tap dancing?
A sheet of plywood or other hard surface you don’t mind getting a little beat up works great. Otherwise, you can exchange your tap shoes for sneakers to still get some great practice while not doing any damage to the floors at home.
Do I have to wear my leotard for dance classes?
While you certainly can, this is not mandatory. Wear what you have and come comfortable. The important thing is to have fun while we learn together.
