How should I prepare for my first ever ballet class?

Question by a-redheaded-whovian(dot)tumblr(dot)com: How should I prepare for my first ever ballet class?
I’m going to be starting a ballet class in the fall, and I know that’s a long time from now, but that’s sort of the point. I’m fifteen and have never danced before, but I figure skated until I was at freestyle 1 level and had to stop. I’ve never been very flexible, but I consider myself to be in shape.
Is there any stretches or exercises I can do and attempt to perfect over the spring and summer? Just so when my evaluation comes ’round, I can be at least a little prepared.

(I do Yoga regularly aswell, so, if there are any sequences or poses that would be helpful in my case, that would be wonderful information.)
