“I start my ballet classes at a studio this week and im really nervous because its something iv never done before. Is there any etiquette that one needs to follow? And do you have any advice so maybe im not so nervous?”
-grapleaiddinosaur

Ooh, etiquette question! That’s different! There are some basic things to follow to not appear rude in a ballet class:

And it is totally normal to be nervous. I’d suggest getting there early and introducing yourself to the instructor before class begins. If they know you’re brand new, they’re likely to give you gentle corrections and not assume you know things, so you’ll feel less pressured. And remember that things are going to feel strange: the muscles used in ballet and the way you’ll be moving are not normal for your day-to-day life, so it’ll be a big change.

Have fun in class!
