For anyone new to online dancing:

There are no expectations about how you should interact. It's OK to just listen, watch, or chat.... & many of us do all of those on different days. Others dance with videos on or off, and some interact on the video camera (maybe PIN videos with a friend), others dance with a broom or stuffed animal, and some play along with the tunes (with their sound muted). Feel free to do whatever is comfortable for you. Most are so happy to see friends or meet folks from around the world. We hope it brings you some joy, but tears are normal too. We realize online dance will never replace in-person dance & community, but it's better than nothing for many of us, and surprisingly better than we thought it would be.

There is no newcomers introduction. Feel free to join and enjoy the wonderful music how ever you'd like!

If you have audio issues, Stop your video. Use the "Z00m" App not the browser. Close ALL other apps on your device. Connect to internet with ethernet cable. Connect to power on your device, running on battery can slow functions. Move closer to your WIFI.
