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

Question by β™₯ Cute T β™₯: 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! πŸ˜€
I’m really kind of desperate here, lol. I’m hungry for all knowledge on this! πŸ™‚

Q&A: Just learned a new ballet step in a begininning class. is there a more typical way of doing this?

Question by lusia: Just learned a new ballet step in a begininning class. is there a more typical way of doing this?
Hi, just starting a ballet class. I’m trying to practice a routine, which I have to have down before my next class and there’s one part I can’t remember. I thought, perhaps, there could be a more common way of teaching/doing this ballet move, and dancers may just know which way it should go.
It’s a quick three step thing:
So, start in first position, slide to dancer’s right into second, then slide left foot into fifth w/ left heel in front and one more slide to fifth w/ left heel in back. Or it could be the other way around; left heel in back, then in front. That’s the question. Which order? front, back OR back, front? Anybody know this??
(through this, the right arm goes up to high fifth and circlies back, down, while the other arm goes only to second)
can you remember how you first learned this?
It would be AMAZING if someone could help. thanks!
any guesses, thoughts would be appreciated
