Taking a STEEZY Studio class is easy and intuitive, and not so different from an class you’d take in real life.

You will first meet the choreographer via a short video message from them (like any other irl class), and start learning! (Like any other irl class.)

Choreographers usually teach in sections, so we divided our lessons accordingly.

You will be learning the moves of a few 8-counts, and piecing them together in slow, medium, and tempo speeds.

Buttons to utilize

how to use steezy studio

“15 second rewind” & 15 “second fast-forward”

Missed something? Need to catch a detail? Was the class moving too fast?

No worries, just hit the 15-second rewind button, and it’ll zoom you back to where you need to be.

And if you wanna skip ahead, the fast-forward button comes in handy.

“Switch to front/back view”

The classes are shot from the front and the back, so that you can choose whichever view works best for you.

A lot of students like to learn from the back-view, since it’s more representative of a physical in-person class.

You can toggle to the front view to see details like what to do with your arms, face, etc.

Pro tip: Hitting the spacebar is a quicker way to switch your views!

 

Record and share

All STEEZY Studio members are a part of a secret (shhh~) Facebook group where we share our pieces, ask for advice, talk about our communities, and just get to know each other!

We also use the group to update each other on our progress. Record a video of yourself doing the piece you learned and share it!

Other members and choreographers will give you helpful feedback on your performance.

It’s sort of like going up at¬†the end of a class to perform in groups.

Getting in front of a camera or having people critique you may feel scary, but it definitely helps you grow as a dancer.

Get support and feedback

The STEEZY Squad is here if you have any questions, suggestions, or even requests for certain choreographers or styles!

You can use the built-in messaging app 24/7, and we respond to every single one.
