I m 16, & ever since I was really little I wanted to be a ballerina but I was way too shy to take classes. I m still quite shy but I ve definitely gotten better and have been trying to push myself out my comfort zone and start participating in more so

Answers:

I started ballet classes at 32, you can start them at 16.

No way are you too old to take ballet classes. Recreational ballet is for anyone of any age, shape or ability. Find a teen or teen/adult beginner class and get started.

In regards to taking it seriously you will be limited due to your age and having aged out of professional level training. It will be hard to find more serious training at your age unless you live in a city with a strong professional dance presence like NYC, Philly or Chicago if you are in the USA. They will offer open classes to teen/adults so you can take daily classes. Many recreational schools only offer one teen/adult ballet class a week. On a recreational level you really need to take at least three 90 minute classes a week to take ballet to a more serious level. Serious dancers on track for a ballet career train 20-30 hours a week year round. They have completed their training at your age as that is when they apprentice with a professional ballet company and then made corps de ballet about six months later.

If you wish to eventually go en pointe one day, you need to take at least three 90 minute classes a week for at least three years. Keep in mind pointe work isn't doable for everyone.

No reason you can't do this and reach your personal best.

(FYI -the title "Ballerina" is reserved for the top female dancer in a professional ballet company. Most professional ballet dancers never earn that title. Many people including recreational dancers aren't aware of this and misuse the word to mean any female who takes ballet classes.)

You are never too old to take a dance class. Dance is a wonderful, amazing thing and if you think you wil enjoy it... go for it!! Don't worry about your age. I know plenty of people that started later.

No. I started when I was little and hated it. But if it's something you think you'd enjoy go for it! Your never to old to try out a new hobby.

i think it is awesome that you want to study dance!
