HJS pilot in June: Sign up for classes in advance!!

In order to increase the efficiency of the sign-in procedure were are testing the possibility of signing in for classes in advance. This gives you the opportunity to book your next class, without having to stand in line at the reception desk here.
Can you help us and sign up online for the classes you plan take this month? This will help us learning how this works, and if this might be a handy feature to use in the future. Especially during the HJS Summer intensive, when classes may reach the maximum amount of dancers allowed. It can be efficient in controlling the lines in front of the reception desk in the morning, and can help you in saving a spot on time.
When you sign in on-line, this will NOT be taken off from your 10-class card. Only after you have shown up at the desk and identified yourself to the receptionist will your participation be confirmed, and the class deducted from you remaining classes.
If you didn’t already install the MINDBODY APP, please do so.
