Great Class!!! Looked forward to it each week it was on. I hope it continues into the fall. With the warm weather coming, it's getting harder to attend a class in the middle of the day on Sunday. I hope they move it to a different time and day, or continue it when the weather starts getting cooler again.

I thought that the material taught was safe and was simple enough for everyone to follow. I did however, have difficulty hearing the teacher when she moved away from, I am assuming the microphone in order to demonstrate on the stool. Also, my situation is not well suited to Zoom movement classes in that my computer screen is on my desk and when doing floorwork I could not see the screen.

Nadia had a class plan, and also asked students for any special concerns (i.e, back, flexibility challenges, balance, etc.). She was very considerate of possible student limitations and offered alternative positioning. At points when Nadia backed away from her computer, it was a little hard to hear her clearly -- perhaps a better microphone arrangement would help.

This class was great. As someone without any dance class experience, I felt the class was well paced. We started with small digestible movements and ultimately built a routine out of them. The teacher had good energy and was genuinely interested that everyone in the class learn the routine. I recommend this class to anyone with interest in hip hop dancing regardless of prior experience.

The instructor was very good about adapting poses for people who couldn't achieve the original pose. Holding time was perfect. I would have preferred to start on my back. It was hard, in the beginning, to do poses looking down when I couldn't see the screen. I think starting with poses I could see first would have helped me to understand other poses I couldn't see after I got used to her language and references. The music was distracting and I was glad when she turned it off. Music is okay, but not songs. I was glad for the quick break in the middle. I felt great when I was finished with the session. I would like to take another course from Nadia.

Nadya was wonderful. Great class for beginner level. She made it fun, clear and easy to follow. What a sweetheart! I would take other classes with her if offered.

The class was fun. The choreography was easy enough for people who have not had so much rhythmic dance experience and challenging enough for intermediate dancers. There were technical diff. at points but that is t be expected these days.
