The idea of taking a dance class as an adult, especially a ballet class can seem daunting, what advice would you give someone new to ballet?
Yvette: It's perfectly normal to be feeling nervous for your first ballet class, and most people are all feeling the same way. As a teacher, I try to create a warm environment where everyone feels comfortable to try new things, with plenty of options and where it's okay to make mistakes. Also - most people are so focused on learning the exercise that they definitely aren't noticing anyone else!
Justine: My advice for someone starting new to ballet would be to remember everyone else is new as well, ballet is for everyone young and old, you don’t need tutus, tights or leotards, just a pair of ballet shoes and comfortable clothing is fine and to take it slowly at your own pace and enjoy the experience.
