elie Posted February 16, 2005 Report Share Posted February 16, 2005 Hello everyone! This is to intorduce myself (since I just registered yesterday) and to share a couple of thoughts I 've been having lately.. I am 28 years old and I started taking ballet classes again after having quit for ages..I was very dedicated and (I presume) quite serious during class and therefore, within a year, I was moved from beginner's class to RAD Grade 6. I take classes 3 times a week, for 2 hours, and half of the class we do point work. I have to admit that I am not very flexible, but my technique is quite good and I am pretty good on pointe (Of course we don't do extremely difficult things, but I have no problem doing lots of echappes or retire passes on pointe in the center .) The problem is that, even though I am entirely aware of the fact that ballet will just remain a hobby for me (I am TOO old), I would definitely like to see myself progress and maybe sometime in the future reach the advanced level. Is it too late for thoughts like that? Do you think that at the age of 32 (for example) someone could make it to that level? Or -no matter how hard you try- there will always be things that you 'll never be able to do? Quote Link to comment
