In response to the N.S Government health safety directives that were announced today, all LHSD classes will be taught online via Zoom starting tomorrow – Wednesday, Nov. 25 at 4:30PM. They will remain online, up to and including Wednesday, December 9th. Hopefully after two weeks online we will be able to return to live classes in the studio. If government extends the lockdown date, we will adjust our date accordingly.
All classes will take place on their normal days and regular times. We will be using two Zoom accounts to facilitate this. Login information is as follows:

Please read the Preparing For Online Classes information on the Online Learning page of the website before joining classes. Parents of younger children are welcome to participate in classes with their child. Online classes can be difficult for younger children to understand. Your help as a ‘teaching assistant’ would be greatly appreciated. Children in Ballet 1 and higher should have enough experience with dance class content and classroom behaviour to participate on their own. If your child needs some additional assistance, we will get in touch. As much as possible, please try to provide your child with a distraction free environment so they can participate fully.
Try to update your Zoom app regularly for the best viewing experience. The current version is 5.4.4 and they usually update on Mondays.
Stay healthy, safe and let’s keep dancing!
We are excited that students return to the studio starting September 12th, but we know that not everyone is ready to join us at the studio at this time. We are now offering hybrid learning. Please contact us for more information about virtually joining many of our live classes.
Students who are new to LHSD must download and remit a completed Registration Form to participate in classes. Registered online students will be sent current Zoom login information. Please read Preparing for Online Classes on the Online Learning page before participating. Don’t forget to keep your Zoom app updated regularly or you may not be able to access the class.
