The Edge Performing Arts Centre is offering virtual dance classes beginning Thursday.

All of their private, virtual classes will be hosted via a secure app called Zoom. Zoom is being widely used by schools and universities to provide a safe and secure meeting environment for students and teachers.

Attendance to each class will be by invitation only, issued by the instructor after the manager or owner of the studio has registered your dancer to the virtual classrooms.

New students are welcome and encouraged to sign up for the free classes. New students will be screened carefully to ensure the safety and privacy of both students and instructors.

Zoom is 100 percent free and is available to all platforms. Install it to a device intended for use with classes in advance.

To sign up for classes, private message The Edge Performing Arts Centre on Facebook or call the studio at (620) 229-9300 or (620) 402-0233. They will need a name, a student’s name, a list of classes a child intends to take and either a phone number or email address for the device used.

All music used in our videos has been purchased and licensed for commercial use through ASCAP.

The Zoom download page is at zoom.us/download#client_4meeting.
