Click the button below to be a part of the Live Class. 

You will enter a "waiting room" until your Teacher invites you in. 

Please be sure to enter the name of your dancer as your user name when entering the Zoom room.  

 

For security, if we do not recognize your name (or if it is generic "My iPhone", "My iPad"), we will not give access to the live class.

By agreeing to join the TDE Digital Dance Academy, you agree to hereby release The Dance Extension, LLC, its officers, directors, employees, and agents from any and all liability which may result from the participation of online or virtual classes and events offered by The Dance Extension, LLC. 

  • Be sure you've reviewed our Liability Waiver. 

  • We recommend logging on 3 minutes before your class start time to ensure Zoom and your laptop/desktop/mobile device is working properly.  

  • Parents of children ages 3-6 should be nearby to re-direct & re-focus dancers as needed.

  • Clear a 6' x 6' space for your dancer to move in.  

  • Do not dance under overhead objects such as chandeliers & ceiling fans. 

  • Attire: Dancers are encouraged to attend class in dance attire, but it is not required.  

  • Footwear: Please choose footwear based on the surface you will practice on. Bare feet or your normal dance shoes are best! For tap classes, we certainly do not want you to scratch your floors or dance on concrete. Consider covering taps with duct tape over the taps or simple go barefoot.  No socks without grips on the bottom (too slippery!)

  • Dancers do not need to request permission to use the bathroom or take a water break!
