Ballet requires an ample amount of workout space. Make sure that there is enough room for the students to dance and that the area is safe from hazardous materials that they can step or run into. Make sure that the floor is not slick as well. Students will need to make sure that they are warmed up and that they have a bottle of water with them.

Injury is possible in this course just like any other sport, pulled muscles and ankle injuries are the main ones to be aware of.
