STDA Lockdown 2.0

Dear Parents & Pupils.

Sorry for the delay in getting in touch with you all but there has been lots of things to sort out ready for STDA Zoom to begin.

Lessons will start on Monday 9th November on Zoom.
We are aware some of you are familiar with zoom but some are not, therefore We will be running a Zoom taster on Sunday 8th for any one to attend to try it out.

Please create a zoom account – if you haven’t got one.
Zoom can be used on a computer or tablet/iPad or phone depending on what works best for each individual.

Sunday 8th November  – Zoom Tester.
3.00pm – 9 years and under
3.30pm – 10-12 years
4.00pm – 13 years and over

All Zoom classes will be using the same meeting ID and Password 
Please contact a member of staff if you have not received an email with this information on.

Please be prompt logging in
(But not before the time stated  – or you will join another class and have to re- join)
Where children attend consecutive lessons you will have to join the meeting again to start new lesson.

Once joined the meeting please make sure you are muted so background noise doesn’t interfere with the lesson. If a pupil wants to ask a question – it can be put in the chat or un-mute your computer to ask.

Please see the attached timetable for zoom as well as some helpful hints.


After many discussions with the ISTD we have had to make the following decisions regarding exams.

Ballet exams that were due on the 8th November have been postponed. 
These will now take place Sunday 6th December (lockdown depending)
We know this is not ideal but as the lockdown is only scheduled to be 4 weeks long the ISTD will not refund entrance fees!
We encourage pupils to attend their classes on zoom to remain up to date with their classwork and then exam coaching will run when lockdown is released prior to the exams.

Tap & Modern exams from end of November / beginning of December are cancelled. 
We feel despite doing online zoom classes they will not be as prepared as we would like. These pupils will now move up to the next grade.
With the talk of lockdown we did not send in fees to the ISTD so for anyone that had already paid please contact us with the following details for a refund.
