Update: March 27, 2020

Closed Through April 30

Based on recommendations and an abundance of caution, I have decided to cancel the remaining in-person classes for this session. I hope to resume our in-person classes with the May-June 2020 session.

Virtual Classes Available

To help hold you over, I have created virtual classes for this session for Level 1, 2.2 and 3. The creation of each weeks’ classes is quite time consuming, but if I can get ahead on the classes for these 3 levels, I will look to expand our offering to other levels. We have had several requests for the Never-2-Late classes to be available in this format, rather than the DVD.

There are 2 ways to sign up for these lessons:

1 – Using the WellnessLiving Registration system
2 – Via email

If you are comfortable using the WellnessLiving site, you can log into your account and register. I have set up the 3 classes so that they begin the evening of Monday, March 23 and run for 7 weeks (through May 4). Since the Week 1 date has passed, you will need to contact me so I can retroactively enroll you in that class. If you wish to receive all 7 weeks worth of classes, you will need to enroll in each week. If you don’t have an active class pass, you will need to purchase class passes (single class or one of our flex-passes) just like you would for a regular class. Each week’s class is considered a single class.

If you need to purchase classes, you can do so by clicking this link:

Wall-2-Wall Tap Dance Center Online Store

Once you have passes, you can then enroll in the class(es) desired. Just click on BOOK NOW at the top of the screen, and then find your class. If you want to enroll for the entire session, be sure to toggle “Book Recurring” to ON.

If you are using the WellnessLiving Achieve App, we recommend purchasing your pass(es) if needed first by selecting STORE at the bottom of the screen, and then booking your classes. The app does not have a feature that allows you to booking recurring classes, so you will need to book each class individually.

If you prefer to register via email, please send an email to Mary Wall (mary@w2wdance.com) and include the following information:
1 – Which class or classes you wish to take (Level 1, Level 2.2, or Level 3)
2 – Which weeks you would like (or the entire session)
3 – Best phone number and time to call should I have questions or if you do not have enough classes to cover your registration. This way, I can sell you a pass over the phone (credit card required).

Each Monday, I will email you your weekly lesson(s). Week 1 will be emailed out tomorrow, followed by Week 2 on March 30, etc. Your lesson will come in an attached PDF and includes step by step instructions for your class. There are links to videos for the warm-up and everything that is covered in the lesson. The PDF also includes choreography notes. If you miss registering for a week, I can retroactively add you to the class and send you the lesson. Just drop me an email. I have also opted to start at Week 1, even though we held classes that week. I thought that since we’ve been off for a awhile and there are probably people who missed that week, we’d just start the video lessons from the beginning.

If you sign up for these lessons, you need to agree to not share the PDF or information about the videos with ANYONE. If you know anyone who wants access to them, please have them email me or register. I cannot afford to have my hard work passed around without receiving payment for it.

Also, please note that I am videoing these lessons on my own using my cell phone. They are not the most professional videos, but this was the most practical way for me to do this and still practice social distancing. Should we reach a point where we are on a complete lock-down and I can no longer go to the studio, I am also set up to video from home so lesson will continue.

I may look to create similar lessons for the other levels once I feel caught up and/or a little bit ahead for the three levels I’m currently doing.

How Can You Help?

Just like any small business, my business has been hit hard by the corona-virus, especially after breaking my leg last summer and my arm in December. I’ve heard from a lot of people who are asking what they can do to help make sure my business survives this. There are 2 things you can do:

1 – Buy Class Passes: the 120 day timer doesn’t start until you use the first class on your pass. So you can purchase a pass today and it will stay on your account and available until you actually use the first class on it. You can also use these passes to pay for our virtual class. Click here to buy a Flex-Pass.

2 – Buy a Gift Card: We have virtual Gift Cards available on our online store. You pick the amount! Click here to purchase a Gift Card.
