Q: I see a Zoom class scheduled for my student and have not been sent any information. How can I gain access?
A: If you have not been given access to a Youth/Teen Zoom class, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you access and make sure you are on all email lists moving forward.
Q: The schedule of online Youth Classes looks different than the original dates/times. Are all the classes still happening?
A: Yes. All students have access to their teachers/classes. We were strategic in how we scheduled classes in order to slightly reduce teaching hours. Some Little and Young Movers classes have been combined. If your student’s class usually happens twice a week, it will be recorded during the first live class, then sent to you for the second half of the week. If you have any confusion around this, please email email@example.com.
Q: I make monthly auto payments for my child’s classes every month. Will these continue even without classes?
A: As we have started offering out Youth classes online, all auto payments will run as scheduled. The last pay date was My 15th. That said, we will be offering a number of ways to support families who need a reduced rate or waived fee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Q: Will the Annual Recital still take place in May?
A: Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel our Annual Recital. We will be holding a virtual recital on Friday, June 5th at 5pm. We hope you join us! Email email@example.com for more information and Zoom links.
Q: When can I expect to take classes again?
A: As of now, Motion Pacific is closed until further notice. However, we are offering our Youth classes via Zoom as well as some Adult classes. Please see schedule above. Please check back in for updates.
Q: I bought a class pass and it’s expired during the time of the shelter in place. How can I remedy this?
A: Motion Pacific will be working with all students and patrons to extend class passes as needed. We will make sure to keep you dancing when we come back!
Q: What about other Motion Pacific events like MAJESTY or max10?
A: The city of Santa Cruz has informed us that no public gatherings are allowed until further notice. A Virtual MAJESTY will occur Saturday, June 6th @ 7:30pm. You can purchase tickets on Eventbrite!
Q: Are you still planning on holding Youth/Teen Summer Camps?
A: At this point in time, Motion Pacific will not be holding physical summer camps. Virtual camps may be available for purchase in the summer. Please check back for more details.
