I'm taking classes this summer after not dancing all year. I was never really flexible, and my turn out was never good. I am completely out of shape. I'm really nervous! I don't want to emabarrass myself. What should I do to prepare for classes?

Dancers are always their own worst critic, so I'm sure you weren't as bad as you think you were! Regardless, reconsider the reasons why you want to take class, and stay focused on that. The important thing is not that you're perfect, but that you're dancing! We all have strengths and weaknesses- focus on your strengths, and work on your weaknesses. :clapping:
