How Our Classes Work

All Inpsire Bellydance and Fitness classes run as 10-week courses. A "course" means a particular class, once a week for 10 weeks. When you enrol, you're joining for the whole 10 week period.

We now offer two options:

How to attend online lessons

Live streaming means that we are connected in real time in a private online meeting space (using the platform "Zoom"). You can see and hear the instructor, and if you have your camera turned on, she can also see you. Just like in a face-to-face situation, we can talk interact, ask questions and give feedback, encouragement and assistance. Before and after the class, you can connect and chat to classmates. It's the best solution to social isolation!

When you enrol in a course, you'll be sent the secret link to join your class. It's as simple as following the link to join your Zoom classroom.

How to set up and prepare for online classes

What do I need?

• Good internet access is important – ideally broadband / NBN if available
• A computer (desktop or laptop), or mobile device
• For Audio, you will need speakers and a microphone – built-in or USB plugin or wireless Bluetooth. Most computers and tablets have built-in speakers and microphone; the microphone is perfectly adequate, but the speakers don't usually go very loud. We recommend commecting external speakers so you can hear clearly, and to get the music volume up high enough (especially for Zumba and Bellydance Fitness).
• For Video, you will need a Web Camera – built-in on most computers and tablets
• Optionally, connect your device to a TV screen (using HDMI cable and the relevant adaptor for your device)
• Set up your dance space! Ideally you should have enough room to move around (2x2m is a good start), with suitable flooring. Make sure the lighting will be enough for the teacher to see you.
• Figure out where to place your device so that you can see the teacher, and they can see you.

How do I set it up?

There is no need to create an account with Zoom to access our classes.

Joining a Zoom Meeting

We will send the Zoom link to your registered email address. Make sure you log in at least 10 minutes before the start time to check that your equipment is working correctly.

There are two ways to join a session/meeting:
1. Click the link in your email. It will prompt you to open the Zoom app.
2. From your Zoom Meeting client directly: Click on ‘Join a Meeting’ and then enter your scheduled meeting ID and password.
If you're early and the meeting is not yet open, you will see an option to test your computer audio. Go ahead and do it.

Select “Join Audio Conference by Computer”
You can test your microphone and speakers by selecting “Test Computer Mic & Speakers”.

Once you've clicked to join the meeting, you will be placed in a "waiting room". Stay online and your teacher will admit you into the classroom. This is for security, so that our class is kept private.
