CityDance School and Conservatory Monthly Newsletter: May 2021

C&Y Online Class Filming

We will have a filming for the remaining classes online during the week of Monday, May 3 through Wednesday, May 13. There are only a few days remaining prior to our online filming days so it is very important that dancers attend all their remaining classes. Emails have been sent with costume details for each class and the filming date.
You can view the C&Y Zoom Recording dates schedule here.
Please make sure your child signs in to class at least 5-10 minutes early so that we can take care of any last minute details and have time to rehearse before recording! 
Some things to have prepared before class: 
LIGHTING - make sure you are clearly visible 
CONNECTION - make sure you have a stable internet connection 
SPACE - make sure there is plenty of space for you to move unobstructed
COSTUME/HAIR - make sure you hair and make up, if necessary, are ready before signing on for class 
 IF YOU NEED TO USE A DIFFERENT LOCATION IN YOUR HOME TO ENABLE A GOOD SPACE, LIGHTING, OR INTERNET CONNECTION, please be prepared before recording this week!
Thank you and we are so looking forward and excited for our online Children and Youth Concert in 2021!
