Let’s be honest, 2020 and 2021 have required a lot of adjustments and now we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. We’ve spent the last year and a half getting used to the new normal and online dance classes, and now we are one step closer to dancing in-person again!
Dance classes in Toronto are finally reopening, but as the process continues and we work to ensure everyone’s safety, online dance classes remain a good option.
Virtual dance camps have been hugely helpful in keeping our kids active and engaged in something they love. Our online dance classes in Toronto have been going great, but at Performing Dance Arts, we don’t settle for greatness. We go above and beyond.
Below, we put together some tips to help parents understand how to make their child’s virtual dance classes even better. Here’s how parents can ensure their kids are getting the most out of the experience.
Set Up a Clear Space
Something we’ve all learned during our extended home stays is that clearly marking space for certain activities in the home is key to keeping ourselves on track. Set up a clear space for your kids that they know is for dance and is free from obstacles, ensuring focus and safety during virtual dance classes in Toronto.
Don’t Make It a Family Affair
Parents and siblings should of course be able to watch and support their dancers, but they should do so from afar. That means no distractions, no advice, no talking—your children need to focus, and distracting input not only interrupts that focus, but can also hurt confidence.
Speaking of focus, kids are notoriously easy to distract (especially at younger ages) if you want your kids to get the most out of their online dance classes, you should reduce distractions by keeping windows covered. Also, have your kids go the washroom and have a snack before they start—just as you would before in-person dance classes in Toronto!
