All Done? What Do I do Next?

Once you have completed all the above steps please go to the sign up page to register your details for the class(es) you would like to join.

Once I receive your registration and Skype account information you will be added as a contact to RESiDANCE Studios and you will be sent a contact request which you must look out for and accept in order to join the class. Once this has been done you will be added to a group Skype session with the rest of the class members, and you will all be called at the same moment when the class begins. 

On the agreed date and time of your lesson please open Skype and sign into your account 15 minutes before the lesson begins and wait for me to connect with you so you can participate in the dance class. It is very difficult to add people once the call has started as we would have to disconnect and call again, so it is important to be ready and waiting for it to begin.
