WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT OUR DIGITAL DANCE CLASSES?
Our daughter is loving her digital dance classes. She likes getting dressed up and performing for us in our lounge room. It’s been great to watch her having fun and continue to develop her dance skills during this difficult time. Thanks Miss Sally for putting together such entertaining classes that the whole family can join in with and have some fun.
Our daughter has really enjoyed the digital dance classes. She’s able to pause and practice certain moves again and do the lesson over and over whenever she feels like dancing. It has really been great for her to continue to do something she loves throughout this difficult and stressful time.
The online dance classes have been great for the kids! Mahli felt so special when Miss Sally was marking the roll and when she heard her say Mahli she stuck her little arm up in the air saying “yes” it was the cutest xx It has been great to keep the kids moving, keep them up to date and familiar with all the moves and routines for each class. Thank you Miss Sally we miss you but also love that we get to see you every time we practice.
I think the digital dance classes at DiLi have been amazing. On the positive it is very efficient and effective – I love how Lana can basically choose what time of day she wants to do them. It’s as real as it can get to a normal dance class… warm up, lesson is well designed, clear instructions, and it makes her happy seeing her teacher happy. Thank you for all your effort in trying to make the children’s lives as normal as possible through this difficult pandemic. One truly amazing dance teacher!
Miss Sally is still her exuberant, funny and awesome teacher self in every video and to be honest it’s like having her right there in your lounge room one on one guiding my daughter through the movements. One of the biggest upsides to the online learning is that my daughter can do it anytime and as many times as she likes. She can slow it down, pause it and go over parts she isn’t sure of until she gets it. I also enjoy being able to see first hand what’s she is learning and how far she has come. I love that this has allowed some routine normalcy and consistency for our whole family’s in this time where there is so much uncertainty. I have watched the difference in my daughter these past couple of weeks go from relying on others to praise and motivate her to being self motivated and now able to see her own progress not to mention become her own biggest cheerleader. All of this is thanks to Miss Sally and how quickly she was able to start working towards online learning. That’s a true testament to how much she cares for and dedicated she is to her students.
DiLi is not only a wonderful dance school but Sally embodies and ensures being positive and kind is at the forefront of her students’ values, in face to face classes and in the new online dance classes! Being a team player is continually discussed and having fun while ensuring the students individual flavor is expressed is always encouraged. My daughter is a free spirit who loves her classes and the ability to completely be herself, while enjoying dance. It’s truly inspiring and uplifting to see and to be a part of.
