Yoyo School of Dancing Non-Adult Online Classes
Information on 2021-22 online classes will be announced soon! Please stay tuned for updates!
2021 Winter Term (Jan. 4 – Mar. 28)
With 2021 on the horizon, we have been in quarantine for almost an entire year and our lives have changed dramatically. Online learning is now the new trend for arts education. Over the past year, we have seen the advantages of online classes: it’s convenient, it’s flexible, it saves time, it places focus on the class content, it’s easy to share resources, etc. Summarizing our experience from online learning over the past 10 months, Yoyo Dance has set up new classes that are suitable for the online format and combine content from our new and classic classes. We hope to provide the best possible education environment and resources for our students while we are all stuck at home.
