REMOTE OBSERVATION WEEK 1/18-1/21
RECORDING & SHARING PROHIBITION
Each cohort will have one designated Ballet class and one designated Modern class that will be livestreamed via Zoom.
Click HERE to see your child’s class, date/time of the livestream, Zoom link, meeting code and password. For students who are under quarantine during that week, we will be organizing an additional Parent Observation Week again this Spring.
**IMPORTANT: ALL RECORDING AND SHARING IS PROHIBITED, AND WILL RESULT IN FUTURE OBSERVATIONS BEING CANCELLED**
Recording and posting without permission is a serious violation of the artistic and professional integrity of our students and faculty, and violation of this trust will have disciplinary consequences.
Remote Parent Observation sessions will not be recorded, and recording on personal devices is strictly prohibited. If any video of classes being recorded surfaces on social media, all remaining observation classes as well as the Spring Observation Week will be cancelled.
If you have any concerns about your child’s progress being livestreamed, please reach out: email@example.com.
If you have any difficulties logging on, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best to provide technical support.
We look forward to having you take an inside look at the incredible work our students are accomplishing every day, even under the most challenging circumstances.
