Online Class Tips & Waiver


(Parents please ensure your child fully understands these requirements)


  • Though your teacher may be able to see you, it is not the same as a live, in studio class. You will have to take more responsibility than usual for the safety of your space and of your movements.

  • Please make sure you have at least two metres clear space around you, that the floor is clear of any objects or spills, and the surface is appropriate to dance on.  Where possible, ensure webcams are located in a communal space like a living room - rather than a bedroom. If only a private space like a bedroom is available you must keep the door open and/or have a parent present for the duration of class.

  • Try to set up your screen so that it is at, or close to, eye height, and near enough to see the teacher clearly.  Ensure you have the volume set high so that you can hear the instructions. If possible be lit from in front rather than behind, e.g. close curtains if dancing in front of a window. Make sure your device isn’t in danger of being knocked.

  • Your sound will be off when you join. You will be able to hear your teachers but they will not be able to hear you.  Your teachers will decide when to bring your sound on if necessary.  If you have a question please raise your hand until you are noticed on the screen.

  • Wear appropriate clothing.  CJSDA Uniform is preferable. Hair must be tied back.

  • Have a full bottle of water bottle close by.

  • If an exercise or action causes sharp or sudden pain, stop immediately, apply first aid or seek help from your parents. Advise your teacher as soon as possible. Because of the online format your actions are unsupervised by your teacher so please make your own judgements, as you know your own body better than anyone.

  • Have any pets or young siblings in another space to avoid sudden tripping hazards.

  • Please note that the material in any pre-recorded classvideo is copyright and has not been approved for sharing, or for third party recordings.  Sharing of the classes and zoom links and passwords are strictly forbidden.
