NSD ONLINE CLASSES

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

NSD Online is not a "big box", impersonal dance fitness platform ... and these classes do not feature perfect fitness goddesses sporting 6-pack abs :D. Rather, NSD Online classes were developed by me (Virginia) during the Covid lockdown, based on the dance fitness classes I teach here in Wellington, New Zealand. The classes proved so popular, with people all around the globe, that I have decided to make them a permanent part of the NSD timetable.

 

Great Music 

At NSD the music is not just background noise … it is front and centre. If a song doesn't make you feel like dancing ... and singing along ... it won't make it on to the playlist. You will probably know (and love) most of the music we dance to.

 

Satisfying Moves

The choreography in NSD classes is fun, safe, easy-to-master, and created to fit with the music in a very satisfying way.  You don't need to have done dance or dance fitness before.  But if you've danced before, you'll love the variety.

 

It's Not About Me ...

I understand that you are busy, and when you exercise at home, you want something fun and effective. I will always introduce myself at the beginning of an online class, and briefly chat about the tracks we dance to ... and I love getting emails, comments and song/track requests from people. But, my online classes are not about me waffling on, or being extra, or barking instructions over the music you love. This is your precious time … it is all about you!

Fantastic Fitness 

NSD classes will definitely improve your fitness, strength and general wellbeing.  My classes include tracks intended to tone and sculpt particular muscle groups.  And my routines will work your cardiovascular system and get you sweating. When you love the song, and you love the moves, then you work harder than if you were doing something less fun. The result is improved fitness and general wellbeing … easy. Life is too short to do boring, repetitive exercise!

Flexibility 

No memberships, or commitments.  Just book an NSD Online class when it suits you. Dance your socks off ... feel sweaty and fantastic ... do that class again if you like (for no extra charge, any time before it expires), or book another class when it suits you next ... easy.  

You Time 

Stop worrying about your boss, staff, kids, partner, or things you 'should do'.  NSD classes are a chance to just focus on YOU, while doing something that's fun, healthy, puts a spring in your step and a smile on your dial.  By the end of class, the worries and stresses of your day will be a distant memory.

And remember your first class is free :)

Each class is available for 7-days. You can book a class any time during that 7-day period. Once you have booked a class, you can dance when it suits you, and you can do the class as many times as you like (with anyone in your household) before it expires. Some people like to do a class once ... others like to book a class as soon as it is available and do that class every day until it expires ... it is totally up to you.

*If you live outside of New Zealand, then the start time will be different, and may even be the day before. 9am on Saturday morning NZ time is: 10pm on Friday in London, 2pm on Friday in Los Angeles, 5pm on Friday in New York, 7am Saturday in Sydney (click on the "check your start time" button below to see the start time in other time zones).  Because each class is available for 7-days, there is plenty of time to do the class (more than once if you wish), no matter where you live.

2. The video quality is blurry:
