Student Spotlight: Meet ZYA

“I really enjoyed the virtual dance lessons, especially learning different dances from around the worldI found that I liked the mix of live check in’s and pre-recorded videos. I don’t usually love dancing in front of people, but it was really nice to check in and actually be able to have a conversation with someone.”
