Round Dancers – Using Zoom Meetings to Keep Up Their Skills

Submitted by Mary and Bruce Nelson, Round Dance Instructors for Fun Steps (Edmonton) and Cue Steps (Calgary):

To all Round Dancers

We received several messages from dancers around Alberta that were into serious dance withdrawal and were looking for dance of some kind that they could do during this time of social distancing, where groups cannot get together for a dance.

We have come up with a solution, if you have space in your house that you can manage to dance in, or in your garage, or carport, or even on the driveway or back deck. As long as you can bring your computer, laptop or iPad to the area you pick to dance, you can join one of our Virtual Round Dances.  You can just click on one of the links below and join our zoom meeting dance.  If you have a webcam on your system, you will be able see yourself and other dancers and talk to each other on the break or even send a chat message to one person or to everyone. If you don’t have a webcam you can call in and listen to the dance.

Bruce and Mary Nelson are hosting virtual round dancing three evenings a week until August.  The links for the different evenings are noted below.

Hope to see you at a dance soon.
