TED Talks

While nothing can fully replace the experience of in-studio instruction, our goal is to supplement training during the closure with opportunities for continued education. We are currently offering 36 Zoom classes a week with regular EBA instructors. We ask that dancers continue with EBA Zoom classes that are level appropriate to connect with their instructors and peers, receive real-time corrections and encouragement, and continue to build their dance foundation. There is no limit to the number of classes dancers may log into, and this is a wonderful time for dancers to try out a new style. 

Other opportunities listed under “Virtual Classes” are meant to provide supplemental training and exploration.
