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.)

I am starting a college ballet class and wondering what should I wear?

Question by Powderpuff: I am starting a college ballet class and wondering what should I wear?
I am a bit overweight 150 lbs but hold it mostly in my bust and thighs. I plan to wear leotard and tights at least under my clothing so what can I wear on top to make it a bit more modest. I’ll more than likely be running to my next class directly after my ballet class so it needs to be somewhat appropriate for class. I know you can wear yoga pants and such but can you get those from a dancer store?
Also, what do you wear under the leotard? Do you wear panties and bra?

Is there anything that I should know before enrolling my daughter in ballet class?

Question by starbright: Is there anything that I should know before enrolling my daughter in ballet class?
My daughter is 3 years old and she loves to dance so I think it would be a good idea for her to be in a ballet class. Im probably going to wait a year or two before she starts the class. Is there anything I should know? Because I don’t know much about that stuff. I’ve tried to research but haven’t found much and don’t know where to start.

What should i do to prepare myself for Ballet classes this fall?

Question by ♥ Cute T ♥: What should i do to prepare myself for Ballet classes this fall?
I’ve done Tap for a long, but they mostly worked on ankle exercises. I am pretty stretchy. I’m going to start stretching at least once a day and work on the 5 positions. I can put my weight on my fingertips on the floor while keeping my back and legs straight (inflexibility runs in the family.. except for my dad, lol) and I’ve been reading about doing the splits, but is there anything else I should know?
How do i get my positions perfect? I want my positions to be more than “decent” by the time class starts up on Sept. 18th. I kinda have a “you gotta clean your house before the maid gets here” attitude, but I want to be as good as i can and excel quickly! I know the teachers will help with with all that, but I can only take classes once a week and I REALLY want to get far in this before too long.
Also.. what do you wear to Ballet classes? What kind of pointers did you teacher give you about.. anything when you first started taking Ballet/Pointe?
I am 15 years old. and have NEVER taken Ballet or anything similar to it before, lol.
All help will be MUCH appreciated! 😀
I’m really kind of desperate here, lol. I’m hungry for all knowledge on this! 🙂

Should I quit cheerleading in order to become good at ballet (and *possibly* a ballerina)?

Question by haanah lily: Should I quit cheerleading in order to become good at ballet (and *possibly* a ballerina)?
I just joined competitive cheerleading a month ago (I’m 13 years old by the way). But now I really want to join ballet in September because I’m extremely flexible, disciplined, and it is my dream to be a ballerina. I know I’m very old to start dancing, but I have done hip hop and jazz for two years. I also took a ballet class one day a week for a year, although it was not very structured. I don’t know what to do because I’ve realized that dance is my passion because I remember when I was 10 years old I wanted to be a ballerina more than anything so I stopped figure skating. I should have never stopped dancing, but now I do not know what to do because competitive cheerleading costs money! I’m sure my mom would take me out of cheerleading- she never wanted me to do it, although shes supportive. But I know girls from my school on the cheer team and I would just make a fool out of myself. What should I do? Thank you.
By the way, I’m 5’7″ would I even have a chance as a ballerina? I have very long legs, but I’m not even sure if I would have any chance as a dancer anyway. I’m a back spot in cheerleading.

What should I expect in my first ballet class?

Question by : What should I expect in my first ballet class?
I’m 14 (almost 15) and I’m starting ballet today! I’ve never taken any form of dance before but I LOVE ballet and I’m reasonably flexible. I can do my right splits and almost my left one and can touch my hands to the floor when I bend over. I don’t have a uniform yet but I’m trying out this class.
The class is an open ballet class but the description said you should have some dance experience. My mom called the building and they said that it would be fine. I’m scared I won’t be able to pick up on it very quickly! :/

What kind of things do you think will they make us do? What should I wear? (I have a black bra, black tanktop, and black leggings, should I wear that and go barefoot?)
I know what the proper attire is, I just haven’t bought it yet. I was informed I was joining this class twenty minutes ago.
