Come dance with us…ONLINE! At Art in Motion Pittsburgh and in collaboration NYC based Zahiya Online, we not only dance around the world, but we dance in your living room! Our merger with Zahiya Online brings you additional online content and virtual classes!
Get started with Zoom:
Zoom is a free app/online download. If you’d like to use your phone or tablet you can download the app through your Google Playstore or Apple App Store. If you are using your computer, you can download here: https://zoom.us/signup.
You will need to have this app in order to participate in the class. This allows everyone to see each other and the teacher to answer any questions you have while also ensuring you are dancing safely and correctly. Classes will be 45 minutes, aloowing for some time to ask questions before and after class. Assuming you are dancing in your bedroom, basement, living room, etc. we can’t include large traveling steps, but will do our best to give you a complete class.
To register for a class: All classes will be 45 minutes long. For our smallest dancers, we will most likely have 35 minutes of dance and time for a craft or conversation at the beginning and end. For our older dancers, we will use a bit of time before and after class to check in! We miss you! Tell us how you are! Simply go to this link and click on the class you would like to join. You will be directed to purchase a drop-in, a class pass or a membership. Once you have done so, you are set! If you have multiple dancers, or have any questions drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
To join the class: Simply click on the link sent to you in your email once you have registered. That link will log you right in to the class (or waiting room if you’re a few minutes early). If you are having issues accessing the class feel free to email us at email@example.com.
What to wear: Dancers can wear whatever is comfortable to move in. If you’d like to put on leotard and tights, hip scarf, dance shoes, etc to have some “normalcy” during this time, feel free! If you want to wear pajamas, that is fine too.
What you need:
- Find any space that you can move around without too much around you.
- If the weather gets nice, feel free to dance outside!
- You may want a chair or wall to use as a barre.
- You can dance on carpet or hardwood/laminate, just make sure you won’t kick anything.
- You also may want a space that you can lay on the ground comfortably so perhaps have a pillow or mat with you.
All classes have been modified to accommodate a smaller space than the traditional dance studio, so you should be able to take class in your bedroom (great excuse to clean your room!), basement, family room, or kitchen.
Most of our in studio classes will be on ZOOM as well. Please see our schedule here
