"Essentially, all our dancers will have access to their two classes a week but we're just catering those be adapted so the kids can complete them in a smaller environment like their lounge room," Ms Jenkins said.
"We did a survey for our students to see what they were missing the most ... they were missing all their friends and socialising and seeing people so we thought Zoom classes were the best way to cater towards that.
"It's an awesome thing for us that we're still able to provide our students with some form of dancing."
