1. A clear safe space
It's important to have a place to dance (ideally 4-6 square metres) that is free from slip or trip hazards. We recommend removing any rugs, small pets or toys from the area so you have enough space to dance 'til your heart's content.
2. A safe floor
It's important to consider the floor you will be dancing on. Ensure to remove any slip hazards (particularly socks on wooden flooring) or potential surfaces that could cause injury. Ballet classes will be modified to ensure your safety but we do not recommend jumping on tiles, concrete or carpet laid over concrete.
3. A ballet barre
Dancing at home might mean you may not have access to a ballet barre. We recommend using the back of a sturdy chair weighted with some heavy books or a strong railing or bench top.
4. Comfortable Dance Wear
We recommend to wear a leotard and tights with ballet skirt (optional) or fitted tracksuit pants or tights with a fitted t-shirt. Please wear ballet flats. No pointe shoes will be required. You can also wear your QB Junior Friends T-Shirt!
5. An electronic device
You can access ZOOM on your smart phone, laptop, tablet or desktop computer device. QB respects each individual’s decision whether they would like the personal device camera on or off during class. At the commencement of the online class, the QB Junior Friends Ambassador will chat through the process for the class. All participant microphones will be muted during the class.
