OMG The NYC Ballet?!?! Thats arguably the best Nutcracker in the World!
Thats so cool. When you start dance just relax and don't break anthing. Here are some tips on finding a studio.
1. Make sure the floors are okay. They sould NEVER be concrete. They should be like a basket weave with Marley on top.
2. There shouldn't be more than 15 to 20 people in the class. A large class can mean little or no direct help from the teacher.
3. Find something that fits you. If you want to focus on just Ballet then you should probably find a Studio that focuses on Ballet.
Hope those were helpul!!
