We understand that space is going to be limited. Choreography will be designed to keep routines as compact as possible. However, it is important that your space is clear and tidy. Please consider potential risks, choose an appropriate space and remove any hazards. We also know pets can get excited when you’re dancing and want to get involved, but please keep them away to avoid tripping.
