VIRTUAL EVENTS

What is a 'Virtual Event'?


A Virtual Event is where the event is brought live to your loungeroom by accessing it on your computer using Zoom Software. For an idea what it's like please click here.




Is it hard to setup a Virtual Event and does the software cost anything?


No! Setting up the software is really easy and it costs nothing. We use Zoom software and it can be downloaded to most devices including PC's, Macs, Tablets and Smart Phones.




Can you show me how to setup the required software?


If you don't have the necessary 'software' (which is normally just a web browser client) you'll be prompted to download it after you click on the link to the Virtual Disco. NB. We'll email this link to you about an hour before the disco starts which should give you plenty of time to make sure everything is working before DANCE TIME. :-) For PC's and Macs: The web browser client will be download automatically when you click on the link and join the Zoom 'meeting' (Disco!). However, if you'd like to manually download it earlier you can do so from here. For Tablets and Smartphones: Go to either the App Store or Google Play and download the ZOOM Cloud Meetings App. Type in the Meeting ID you'll receive from us and you're good to go!




How do I access the Virtual Event on the night?


Easy! Make sure you've previously downloaded the Zoom software as described in the Virtual Event FAQ's. Within 24 hours of the Event, EVERYbody Dance Now will email you a link. Before the Event starts, click on the email link and you're ready to dance! :-)) NB. If you're using an App to access the Disco you'll also need to type in the 'Meeting' ID which will be sent to you.




Why do I have to register before the event?


To be part of the event on the night EVERYbody Dance Now needs to email you a link (within 24 hours of the event). You then simply click onto the link on your computer and you're ready to party!




Can the Virtual Event be accessed on PC's, Mac's and Tablets?


Yes! It can be accessed on all these devices. It can even be accessed on Apple and Android phones but something with a larger screen will probably give you a better dancing experience.
