Hello everyone!


My name is Rose and I'm thinking about taking ballet. (I need to get eighty hours of a sport for P.E. credit) I took some when I was little, but don't really remember any of it. I’m almost sixteen, so I wouldn’t quite fit in with adults or little children.


What are your thoughts? Am I too old to even think about it? Could I make any noticeable progress in eighty hours? (I might end up wanting to continue after that, though!) Would I need to be in an adult class, and would that be enjoyable at all for me? I’m musical—I’ve played the violin for many years—and people always think I'm a dancer (because of my posture and how I walk)...so hopefully I wouldn’t learn too slowly. Are there private ballet lessons, and would that work better because of my age?


Thank you for any advice you might have!

Hi, Rose, and welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers! We're glad you found us. We have lots of people who will give you advice AND support. We have quite a few people who have started ballet a little later in life -- some as older teens, and some in middle age!


I'm going to transfer your questions to a different forum, where more people will be likely to see it.

Welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers, Rose. Treefrog has taken good care of you by transferring your questions to the proper forum. Good luck; I hope that if you do take ballet you'll love it; I'm sure you'll do very well.

Rose, there are schools that offer beginning teenage classes, which is what would be the best for you. If not, then probably the adult classes if you can find a good program with several classes a week. Good luck! :rolleyes:
