The title pretty much says it all. I just wanted toknow how old all you guys werr when you started ballet. I am 22 and will start in a week or so.

 

I also thought this might jump start this board which has been a little slow lately. Sorry if this has been posted recently. I cant do a search to find out.

Hi All,

 

I was 30 when I started in the Nutcracker Party Scene and 34 for regular ballet classes and Cinderella.

I am enjoying the heck out of it and can't wait for Nutcracker this year. I sure hope I get a bigger part in this years Nutcracker (although I was the Father last year).

 

Enjoy,

 

Jeff

I was 39; starting ballet class was the official opening

ceremony for my "midlife crisis"... (Now, after almost

4 years, I consider myself to be in mid-midlife crisis :yucky: )

My mom forced me in to it when I was 5 years old. Hated it for a whole year and then all of a sudden fell in love. I have been dancing ever since.

I started dancing (competitive ballroom) at 50, started ballet at 52 and am now 60. Before dance, I was extremely active in physical pursuits, so I think of dance as an evolution of sorts.

I was a young, naive 36. Now I'm a crusty, old 39 and I promise to dance as long as my body can take it.

Oh by the way. My dad who doesn't post on here but he started 3 years ago. He is kind of a joke and the only thing he can do with any certainty are lifts. and even those he doesn't do very well. But he trys and that's what counts... I guess. :dry::(:flowers:

started at 19, got my first professional job at 22, and haven't looked back.

 

OK, that was a lie, I look back all the time and wish I had started when I was 12. . .
