What if I'm late to class?

We do not accept late students at this time as a result of the virtual classroom system requirements.

Can I use my existing class pass/payment method to pay for my virtual classes?

Restrictions may apply. Please email your request to info@joyofdance.ca and we will be evaluating case by case.

I didn't receive an email an hour before class, what do I do?

Please make sure that your email inbox has memory space, check your spam folder and if none of that works, please email duygu@joyofdance.ca to resolve the issue.

How do I interact with my teacher during class?

Class interactions are at the discretion of the teacher. Using ZOOM interface, you have the option to UNMUTE your sound to ask a question or using the CHAT box to message everyone or your teacher privately.

Do I need to open my video during class?

No, you do not need to show your video during class and this is absolutely your preference.

I lost my connection during class and missed the rest of it, can you help?

Don’t worry! Sometimes, the internet connection causes the class to get disconnected. If you are not able to re-join, we keep a recording of our classes that we can share with you in a view-only/password-protected format. Please keep in mind that this at the teachers’ discretion and not all our teachers are comfortable with sharing their class videos.

I was registered for a class but couldn't show up, what are my options?

If you forget that you registered or you accidentally missed your class, please let us know by emailing info@joyofdance.ca.

Is the class shareable with anyone in my house?

Registering for a class is per computer. If you have more than one person who can share your space, go for it! We welcome you to share it with whomever is in the house or space with you. Spread the love the dance.

Credit cards are the fastest and most efficient method of payment. Our system is very secure. However, we are able to accept e-transfer. If this is your preferred method of payment then send us an email to info@joyofdance and we can send you all the details on how to e-transfer to pay for your classes.

Who do I contact if I am having technical difficulties or questions?

If you are having technical difficulties and are not able to connect with your class then send us an email to duygu@joyofdance.ca or call/text 647-792-8811 and we will do our best to assist you in getting into class as fast as we can.
