You are now ready to join our classes!!! Wait for further instructions regarding bookings for specific sessions, get your gym clothes ready and find a nice open space at home to join our workouts. Looking forward to seeing you on our virtual dance floor soon!!
5. Joining classes
For each class you will be sent a specific invite with a meeting link. Use this link to enter the live class. You can only join this class using this link so it is important that you take note of it.
Do not try and ring the host on Zoom once the class has started as this brings disruption to both the instructor and the sound quality is interrupted.
Please always have your audio on mute as this also creates feedback and sound distortion for both the instructor and the other participants.
We have set up waiting rooms for each session, so that you can join the meeting promptly at the start time. Please join the meeting ahead of the scheduled start time so that the instructor can admit you to the room.
Once the class has started, the instructor / host will only be able to add you between tracks or at an interval and so you may miss a portion of the class.
Any issues / concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
