Guest mystargirlrocks Posted March 19, 2003 Report Share Posted March 19, 2003 How old is too old to really start ballet? I'm 48, and feel older since I was injured 3+ years ago. I haven't been able to really exercise as I used to, but feel ready to start something. The only real exercise I really enjoy is dancing, but is the strain going to be too much for me? I've tried following along with my daughter and her ballet tapes. I can make it about 15 minutes before I'm winded and too sore to go on. The thighs burn with all those plies! Also, I have to modify the arm placements as I still cannot hold my arms out to the side for very long. (the injury is a repetive strain to my neck shoulders and upper back). Anyone out there that ever started 'old' and/or injured, that can offer some advise? Quote Link to comment
