How do I join the online classes? 

In the class email there’s a link to join the class. Click on this link and you’ll be entered into the online waiting room. The teacher will let you in when the class starts. When you enter the online studio, you will be on mute. Please keep yourself on mute during the class so everyone can hear the teacher. If you have a question of course you can unmute yourself and ask the teacher. Or email bookings@londondanceacademy.co.uk with any technical issues or feedback.

What happens during the online class?

When the class starts, you will be on mute. If you have any questions during the class you can unmute yourself to ask the teacher, or type it in to the chat box and the London Dance Academy host will help you. If you have a really bad internet connection, you may need to log out and log in again to the class if your connection is interrupted. But don’t worry, we’ll let you straight back in the class.

During the class the teacher will show you what to do, and help you as in any normal class! And you can choose to see the other participants and interact with them if you want. Please keep your video on so the teacher can see you to help!

What are the prices for an online class? 

In May we are updating our pricing to reflect the announcement of the extended lockdown. Every penny we make will go towards continuing to pay our teachers the industry rates they deserve and keeping the studio open. 
 
We know it’s a difficult time for everyone so we are keeping the pay what you can afford structure in place. If you can afford to support the studio and teachers by paying a little more, please do. And if you’re in a tight situation you’ll have the option to pay a little less to keep training with us. We will also continue to offer workshops and a few discounted or free classes to support our community. 
 
We will have 5 different class types, with 3 price options in each.
