Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I access the videos? Do I need to commit to a certain time?

A. Each email lesson will contain links to the relevant technique and drill videos, as well as written information.

You can stream or download the videos at any time for up to 6 months. You can do the assignments at any time, so people in all time zones can participate!

In your orientation email, you will receive a link to a Vimeo album and a password. You don't need a Vimeo account to view the videos — just the link and password.

Over the four weeks of this course, you'll get three email lessons per week, which will direct you to the videos addressed in each lesson. However, you'll have immediate access to all of the videos, just in case you wish to check them out.

Q. What if I miss a day?

A. You can do the assignments the day they arrive in your email inbox — or you can make your own schedule! You won't miss an assignment as long as you keep them all in your email.

You can easily catch up since you'll have access to all videos for 6 months. And you can download them in various sizes if you want to take them with you on a trip or to a place without internet access.

Q. How much time will I need to complete the assignments?

A. Participants will receive assignments by email three days a week for four weeks on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The time commitment for each assignment is 20-30 minutes.

Q. Do I need to turn in my lessons? Will I get feedback?

A. There are three options: Self Study, Accountability, and VIP Feedback. (See the details above!)

If you choose Option 1 Self Study, you do not need to turn in your assignments. This course consists of physical assignments for your growth and advancement. You can do the exercises at your own pace as the videos will remain accessible for 6 months.

If you choose Accountability (Option 2) or VIP Feedback (Option 3), you have until December 10 to complete the assignments and upload your drill videos. With both of these options, you can earn a certificate of completion for this Grace Academy module, which will be mailed or emailed to you. NOTE: This option is currently unavailable

Q. Where do I upload the videos?

A. If you choose Accountability (Option 2) or VIP Feedback (Option 3) you can upload your videos as private or unlisted links on YouTube, Vimeo, or Google Drive. You'll be given access to an online form where you can submit the video links. NOTE: This option is currently unavailable

Q. Do I need special clothing or shoes?

A. Leggings and a tank top or sports bra are recommended. This will allow both you and I to see the lines of your body.

Shoes aren't required, but you are welcome to wear footwear that makes you most comfortable.

If you are uploading videos, please wear fitted/stretchy clothing. Anything flowy or baggy will obstruct Rosa's ability to see your movements clearly.

To purchase canvas or leather ballet slippers, typically $20-$30, you can visit your local dance supply store for a fitting (recommended), or use code TP49115 to get 10% off at Discount Dance Supply. Be sure to read the size charts carefully! Ballet slippers should fit more like socks than shoes. (This code does generate a small commission for this site without adding any cost to your purchase.)
