Would you like to be Zoom Monitor for AIFD?
A message from Scott Margo, Program Director:

Scott Margo Zoom monitors help make Zoom dance events run smoother as well as take the load off of dance instructors. Austin is looking for monitors for Friday dance events on 9/4, 9/18, 10/2, 10/16, and 10/30.

The total time commitment is just over two hours.

SolodancerJohn Bloom of HIFD has posted some good information on how to help better your virtual dance experience.

Also, the dance leaders would like to provide you with some ideas on how to have an easier time following us during our virtual dance sessions. For dances that move around a lot, try taking smaller steps and doing quick little pivots in place to face your screen again. Also, putting up a mirror opposite your monitor screen can assist you in viewing the dance leader while your back is to the screen.
