Thank you for dancing with us on Zoom. Times are tough, so we will continue with these affordable classes to keep you training and feeling connected to our community. In order to keep GMD running, we are initiating new fee options starting on September 8, when our fall season begins.
There are two easy ways to take GMD class on Zoom:
Both payable by e-transfer.*
Beginning in September, every GMD Zoom class will have a unique link. Once payment is received, your email address will be added to our class list. The Zoom link will be sent by email at 10am the morning of class.
*Please include the following information in the message accompanying your e-transfer:
Please ensure that payment is sent no later than 9:30 a.m. the morning of class. You are welcome (and invited) to pay for class the day before.
We will continue to offer free classes, on our website (not on Zoom). There are four classes to choose from available through the ‘GMD on Demand’ tab above.
LUMP SUM CONTRIBUTORS
If you have paid a lump sum for several classes, we will honour those classes going forward. You should hear from us by email soon. If you do not, please get in touch so we know the number of classes you have remaining.
We hope GMD will be a part of your creative life, as you strive to keep body and spirit enriched. We will keep on bringing dance energy to you with our outstanding teachers who offer a variety of movement approaches. New teachers will gradually be added, including Jera Wolfe, Dora Award-winning choreographer for Red Sky Performance’s Trace, and Syreeta Hector, whose recent work Black Ballerina received the Stratford Lab Award for Research & Creation. And back with us, Elke Schroeder, teacher of Inspire by Fighting Monkey.
Thanks again for continuing to support GMD. See you in class!
Take care. Be well,
