Elegance is a 100% online competition – no in-person events will take place. All masterclasses, workshops and performances will take place through ZOOM.
ZOOM is a video-conference platform that allows two or more people to communicate with audio and video.
It has many interesting functions such as turning on/off the computer camera and microphone, as well as written chatting. Other devices such as tablets and cell phones can also be used, although we recommend using a computer for the purpose of the dance competition.
In order to use ZOOM, we advise to download it to your device. Please do this prior to the day of the competition.
On computer, this can be done by searching “zoom download”, and following the instructions. You do not need to get the “pro” plan or other – the “basic” free plan is sufficient to join our competition.
On tablets/phones, download the app from your app center (e.g. App Store).
After downloading, create an account.
In order to join a meeting (that is, the day of the competition), click on “join” and enter the ID that we will be sending out soon.
Once you are in, please make sure you turn you microphone OFF, which can be done by clicking on the little microphone icon.
Please seek help if you are struggling with ZOOM. It is important that all those joining understand the basics of this platform.
