Thank you for your patience and generosity over these past few weeks. We understand that you are being inundated with information from your schools and work. It can feel overwhelming! We are trying our best to make the transition from in studio classes to Virtual classes as easy as possible so that we do not add to your stress.
We are thrilled to be able to continue our regular class schedule via an ONLINE PLATFORM, providing you and your children with access to dance & fitness classes, resources, music, recital choreography, your weekly dance classes and more! Our goal is to keep your child engaged with their friends and teachers, benefiting from the physical and emotional benefits of dance and exercise, and remain excited about the future!
HERE’S HOW IT WILL WORK AS OF FRIDAY, APRIL 3RD:
We will be LIVE STREAMING our existing dance class schedule until we are able to resume in person classes at the studio. This will be a live and interactive private video (ZOOM) between your children and their teachers, a dance class but at home! Your class links can be found in your Google Classroom (links below). We understand this will be a different experience and a short-term solution however, we believe that maintaining consistency is important for our students. Teachers will be scaling their classes to be performed in smaller spaces (ie: your living room, kitchen, hallway…).
You should now have access to your Crossings Google Classroom in which you will find videos from the teachers, recorded classes to work on at home, recital music & videos, finale choreography, notes from the teachers & staff, and links to your child's weekly Virtual Dance Class (ZOOM). You should also have received access to our Crossings FAMILY Classroom, with videos & resources for the whole family!
Be sure to check it out!!
If you have any issues gaining access to your Classroom or have questions about it, please contact us!
