A Note to All Participants:
Before joining a class, please take a moment to consider the appropriate class-level. See TWSB’s level descriptions to help guide you. When in doubt about which level to take, join a lower level first.

Take a moment to prepare your space before class. Use your best judgment when selecting your temporary barre to ensure stability as you work. Consider the floor surface and wear appropriate footwear such as ballet slippers. Test your work area before beginning.

Make smart choices and be mindful of your space as you work. The faculty and demonstrators may have very different environments. Listen closely for options to modify exercises that may align with your environment and technique level.

Most importantly, enjoy! We are excited to continue dancing with you!
