How do I get prepared for ballet class in a community college?

Question by it’s me 😀: How do I get prepared for ballet class in a community college?
I’m 16, and I wanted to take a beginning ballet class in a nearby community college. I just want to take it for fun, not to be a professional dancer or anything. I took a dance class for a semester in the eight grade. (I don’t know if this will help) I want to know what I need to do to get prepared for this class. I was also wondering…on the first day of class, what would you learn? Do you need to have your leotard, tights, and shoes ready? Thanks(:

What do I need to do to take a modern dance class?

Question by zasl: What do I need to do to take a modern dance class?
I love contemporary dance but I have heard that you cant really TAKE a contemporary class specifically.
I have no dace background and was just curious to see whether in order to take modern I would have to take a ballet class or any other kind of dace. Also wondering if there IS a beginner ballet class for people my age.
I am in my late teens and the only dance I have taken is hip hop about a year ago.
