It is advised that before class:
Strive to get the most from each class by using every day as an
opportunity to improve your dance skills and techniques. The following
tips will ensure that you have a successful dance class every time.

Arrive Early
Plan to arrive 15 minutes early to give yourself plenty of time to
prepare, warm up, and stretch. Most teachers appreciate students
who are on time and ready to work. If you arrive late, enter the
studio quietly between combinations to avoid disrupting the class.

Save Big Meals for Later
Don't eat a heavy meal right before you go to class. Dancing on a full
stomach is never a smart idea. Have a small, high-energy snack
before class instead. Good choices for pre-class snacks include fresh
fruit, nuts, energy bars, or dried fruit.

Wear the Right Clothes
Go to class in the proper dance attire, as specified by your teacher.
Always wear dance clothes that fit your body well and make sure your
shoes are the correct size.

Fix Your Hair
Take the time to secure your hair up and out of your eyes and face.
For ballet, hair is to be worn in a secure bun. If your hair is too short
to be pulled up into a bun, try a tight ponytail instead. Bangs should
be away from your face.

Clear Your Mind
Before you enter the room, clear your mind of any outside issues or
concerns. Many people find dancing to be a stress-reliever...use your
class time to relax and clear your mind. Instead of focusing on your
worries, concentrate on your dancing.

Claim Your Space
When you enter the studio, find a spot to stand with plenty of  room
to move and stretch out freely. Wherever you choose to stand, make
sure you can see and hear the teacher.

Be Sensitive to Injuries
If you have an injury, don't overdo it. A sore muscle is vulnerable to
further injury. Realize that your injury will not last forever, but forcing
it will probably prolong your recovery time. Always listen to your body.
If you feel like you probably shouldn't attempt that grande jete, don't.
Give yourself a much-needed break.

Learn at You Own Pace
Everyone learns to dance at a different speed. Don't compare yourself
to others in your class. Some people just seem to catch on faster than
others. Ask questions if you are unclear about a step. Do your best,
smile and have fun!
