* An email invitation to join the class group will be sent earlier before the class in plenty of time for you to

download the Zoom app and find our class. This app does not cost anything to use. 

1. Please warm yourself up well at home. Online classes may only include a moderate warm-up if any.

2. Be somewhere in your home where your internet connection is the strongest.

3.  Please find a private place to work. Class work is private and even online we should treat it that way without anyone else in your household listening in or viewing the work. Everyone is on the honor system to protect the privacy of your fellow students.

4. Please be without distractions. If you cannot do the class without interruptions, we recommend passing on it, or if you have an obligation in your home like a child or loved one, just log off the class midway if necessary. Parents who wish to be close by, please feel free while allowing sufficient privacy for your Teen to participate on their own.

IMPORTANT RULE:

* Our same rules regarding privacy we adhere to inside the studio apply online and we do not want any of what we are working on to be posted online or shown to anyone who is not in class. Please refrain from screen shots or recording of our session.

“During bad circumstances, which is the human inheritance, you must decide not to be reduced. You have your humanity, and you must not allow anything to reduce that. We are obliged to know we are global citizens. Disasters remind us we are world citizens, whether we like it or not.” ~ Maya Angelou

“To grasp the full significance of life is the actor’s duty, to interpret it is his problem and to express it is his dedication.” ~ Marlon Brando
