Virtual Dance Community


Cheshire Dance Takes Sessions Online

Whilst Cheshire Dance is no longer delivering classes in schools, studios, halls, schools and other venues, we are determined to keep our participants moving with our dance artists. As such, whilst we go through this period of social distancing, we are taking some classes online. This will not only allow you to keep on dancing, but it will help us all to stay together, at a distance, as a virtual dancing community.

READ OUR PRESS RELEASE ON THE SUCCESS OF OUR VIRTUAL COMMUNITY HERE.

 

If you are an educational facility that is committed to keeping young people dancing - and if you wish to ensure that the art form still forms an integral part of pupils’ education during the pandemic -please visit our Dance & Education in Schools During COVID-19 page.

Dance With Us At Home


Cheshire Dance invites existing participants to join its virtual dance community and to continue their sessions in the comfort of their own homes. We are keen to keep our community connected and moving, and as such, some classes have been taken online using the platform ZOOM.

Super easy and simple to use, ZOOM not only allows you to see and follow the artist who delivers your usual class, but also the other participants in your group – in real time – to ensure you connect and dance together. In this way, you can stay active, stay healthy and stay social whilst dancing with Cheshire Dance.

As with our traditional sessions, from 1st June 2020 these classes are "Pay as You Dance". Payment can be made via PayPal, either using an existing PayPal account or by using PayPal to pay by Debit Card or Credit Card. Help with Paying by PayPal can be found here.

Donations are also very welcome to help us through these troubled times. We are continuing to support the dance artists that work with us - to support US to support YOUR teachers, you are able to donate £5 by texting CHES001 to 70970 or can alternatively "Pay What You Feel" by clicking here.

 

 

Staying Safe Whilst Dancing at Home

Please Note: Cheshire Dance insurance does not cover you for accidents in your own home. Dancing in your own home means that YOU are responsible for your own Health and Safety and you are NOT covered by Cheshire Dance insurance. With this in mind, you must read - and adhere to - the Cheshire Dance Online Classes Health and Safety Guide before taking part in any session or dance activity.

Additional Terms and Conditions apply to online classes with children and young people. Please go through the T's & C's and work with us to ensure your child remains safe.

 

Using ZOOM

ZOOM really is very simple to use. Your dance leader will provide instructions on how to set up and use ZOOM so that you can join your dance class - and they can also be found here. What's important is that you don’t let the technicalities of operating ZOOM put you off – we will talk you through it and support you to get up and running.

 

Staying safe is YOUR responsibility. Read the Cheshire Dance Online Classes Terms and Conditions here.
