Virtual open class
Update 16 / 06 / 2020
Thank you for being so supportive of our #cvvoc initiative, and we hope the classes have helped you become a little bit more non-essential.
We know that Phase 2 was just announced, and we are clarifying what that means for us, but in the mean time, we have actually planned a next cycle of #cvvoc classes for you!
(refer to our Instagram @converge.studios for news)
NOTE: Same booking process as previous virtual open classes. You will receive a zoom invitation link 1 hour before class. Classes are available for booking the day before.
Yes, we hear you!
For those of you who are running out of credits, or prefer purchasing a package, we are opening up our 5 Classes (valid for 2 months), 10 Classes (valid for 5 months) and 20 Classes (valid for 6 months) packages once more!
These are available for purchase NOW and can be used for both #cvvoc (1.5 hour virtual open class) or usual open classes (1h physical class).
NOTE: Student packages will not be made available this period. Online processing fee applies.
It’s June, and we’ve been home away from home for longer than we expected. With initiatives like @converge.tv and our video tutorials (which are still up!) on uscreen, we hope we’ve given you some reason to move, and some inspiration to dance.
Moving forward, Converge Studios will be offering a week of Virtual Open Classes (VOC), conducted via Zoom! Here’s how you can Converge with us through Phase 1 as we exit the circuit breaker!
Class Duration: 1.5 Hours
Payment: Existing class credits can be utilized.
Alternatively, you can purchase Single Classes via MindBody using your account. Just for this period, Single Classes are changed to $13 (excluding MindBody processing fee).
You will receive a Zoom invitation via email one hour before class starts.
VOC schedule will be updated and renewed weekly.
Virtual Open Classes (VOC) FAQs
a. How can i attend converge VOC?
i. Create a Converge Studios MindBody Online account if you don’t have one yet. Purchase a Single Class or skip if you have existing credits. Sign up for your desired class(es). You will then receive a Zoom invitation link and password 1 hour before class commencement. The room will be open 15 minutes before the scheduled class start time.
b. Why are you moving away from IG Live classes from @converge.tv?
i. Zoom affords us the ability to SEE you, and that would allow our instructors to give you real time corrections, feedback and help in your dance training and journey! It’s still not the full, live Converge experience you’re used to, but we strive to recreate that as closely as possible!
c. Why are VOC 1.5 Hours long?
i. We understand that it takes a bit more effort and time to ask questions, explain movements and more virtually, especially with you stepping away from your phone / laptop to move, then heading back for a closer view or to ask questions. The additional time allows us to give you the full class we believe you deserve.
d. How will VOC differ from @converge.tv livestream classes and tutorials?
i. Besides the ability to see you and give you corrections, tips and feedback, you will also get to see 2 mirrored views of your instructor at the same time to help make learning more effective and efficient: one full body, one close-up.
