4 - Make Space

While YouDance.com's classes are designed to be done at home in your living room, it's still a good idea to make sure you have plenty of space to move around. If you can, move any furniture or obstacles out of the way to create a clear dance space. The more room you have, the better!

When it comes to watching the videos, you have options. Using your phone works perfectly fine, but if you want a bigger screen, you can use your laptop or even your TV. Whatever works best for you and your setup.

7 - Keep Going

Is there a particular move giving you trouble? Don't get discouraged – keep at it! Practice makes progress, and it will feel so good when you finally nail that tricky step or routine. Just remember to keep dancing, keep smiling, and keep having fun. You've got this!
