How to Join A Class

IMPORTANT: You must have a Zoom account to be able to access any Premier Dance online class. This is for security reasons, to maximise the safety of our students. Please see below for further information on Zoom security.
 

 

Please take note that you may have joined a Zoom meeting previously without having registered an account as not all Zoom meetings are set up in the same way. You will not be able to enter a class by entering the meeting ID and a password - this will not let you in. 

 

 

We have configured all Premier Dance Zoom online classes to require users to have a registered Zoom account so that we can monitor participants and protect our students and teachers.

 

 

TO JOIN A CLASS: 

  • For security reasons, you must have a Zoom Account to access any Premier Dance online classes. This will allow us to monitor all participants in a class and is to protect our students and teachers. Please visit zoom.us to create a Zoom account.

  • Open your confirmation email or sign into your Customer Portal

  • Just before the allocated time of the class you are enrolled in please either a) go to your confirmation email and click the remote learning link or b) Log into your Customer Portal and choose "View Enrolments" and click the remote learning link.

  • This will open a new tab in your browser or Zoom app and link you to the Zoom meeting. 

  • If you are not yet logged into your Zoom acouunt, you will receive a message that says "This meeting is for authorized attendees only" and be asked to "Sign in to Join" - please sign in with the Zoom account you created.

  • Please do not try to enter the Zoom meeting ID and password as this will not let you in. Once you are logged into Zoom, clicking the class link will take you straight to the online class.

  • Wait for your class to start. The meeting will start automatically once the teacher has joined. 

  • Please click on Participants and hover over your name and select More>Rename to ensure your child's name is displayed. If we do not recognise a name or the profile picture is not appropriate, they will be removed from the meeting. 

 

ZOOM SECURITY:
With respect to Zoom, we too have seen various internet / social media articles on zoom selling information, however this does not seem to be the case. You can find their privacy policy here which has been endorsed by their chief legal officer : https://zoom.us/docs/en-us/privacy-and-security.html and https://zoom.us/privacy. Please also note that many schools and corporate entities are also using zoom to facilitate such collaboration, and that the ZOOM platform has the appropriate industry security accreditations such as SOC 2 etc

We have selected Zoom as this is one of the most widely used platforms for video sharing and collaboration, and requires very little information from you to join our lessons. It also provides us with many security options that we can attach to our lessons.

All we ask is that you sign up for a zoom account which is free, the only information you will need to provide is a name, a valid email address and a password to obtain an account, and ZOOM are committed to protecting this information in alignment with their privacy policy.

By having a free Zoom account it allows us to ensure that only students with an invite are able to join lessons, thus provides the children a little more security with their online classes. Please also be aware Zoom allows us to track and monitor live who has joined the class and the teachers will be ensuring this occurs for the safety of the children.

 

If you have any questions about enrolling for classes or using Zoom, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Some important points to note:

  • You must have a Zoom account to access online classes with Premier Dance. Please take note that you may have joined a Zoom meeting previously without having registered an account as not all Zoom meetings are set up in the same way. We have configured all Premier Dance Zoom online classes to require users to have a registered Zoom account so that we can monitor participants and protect our students and teachers.

  •  This also means you cannot join a class by entering the meeting ID. You must sign into your Zoom account before clicking the meeting link. Or you may click the link and will then be prompted to sign in.

  • Please change your child’s display name once they have entered the meeting so we can clearly recognise everyone.

  • We encourage you to check what your profile photo is on your Zoom account (we have heard some funny stories!)

  • The teachers will take a roll call which they will mark off on the tablets, as per a normal class.
