Live Online Classes
The show must go on! Carolyn Dutra Digital Dance Studio will continue with live online classes by CDDS teachers, until further notice. The schedule and class Meeting IDs will remain the same each week. 

Currently a staff of four under the direction of Miss Carolyn, we are working very hard to bring the joy of dance and movement directly to every student through the CDDS virtual classroom while upholding our quality standards. We thank you for your patience and support as we finalize future decisions and promise to keep you informed, as we are.
  • Classes: Schedule, class Meeting IDs and passwords remain the same each week.
    • Select classes are invited to each class. Each class is invited to an additional bonus class on a second day! 
    • See full schedule below. We did our best to keep classes on the same day/time as the regular schedule. Times may vary slightly as we combined all three Studio schedules into one. Schedule subject to change as we continue to improve our programming.
    • Do not share Meeting IDs and passwords or record the class.
  • Attendance: We encourage dancers to attend their regular day/time classes. Bonus classes are optional. 
    • Recreational dancers do not need to let us know if they cannot attend a class. 
    • Company dancers must notify Miss Blair if they cannot attend a class.
    • Late entries may not always be able to join the class.
How to get ready for class!
  • For security reasons, Participant Name must be changed to dancers FIRST and LAST NAME in order to be approved in to class from the waiting room. Make sure to change your participant name BEFORE joining class. There are many instructions online on how to do so from various devices. Thank you Google :)
  • See below for props needed for each class.
  • Dress in your CDDS dress code, shoes, and hair pulled back - when dressed like a dancer, you feel like a dancer! Parents, we need your support on this one!
  • Create a safe and clear space in your home that is as distraction free as possible. While we LOVE seeing our dancing fur friends and little siblings, they pull focus from our teachers :)
  • Join five minutes before class begins so you are set up and ready to begin on time.
  • Turn your video on to create a "group class" environment. Angle camera so teachers can see dancer’s full body.
  • Adult supervision is required for Preschool, Primary, Stretch & Wiggle 3-5 - but be sure to let us be the teacher! Adult presence in the household is required for Level 1 and up – Please stay present with your dancer until class begins to make sure everything is working correctly.
  • Everyone is on mute to avoid technological confusion.
  • Share a picture of you and/or your "at home studio" online! Tag us on IG/FB, use #cddsdance!
  • If you are having technological issues, email info@CarolynDutraDanceStudio.com and Miss Blair is available in the ZOOM chat!

  • Move closer to WiFi source in your house
  • Disconnect unused devices from WiFi
