How It Works

Three Simple Steps

Follow your teacher as best you can, but stay aware of your own comfort level and feel free to change anything that doesn’t feel right. Pause or take a break, or skip to the next activity, whenever you choose. We recommend dancing barefoot or with socks if it’s not too slippery. Jazz or ballet shoes work well too
