I have only been dancing for two years (I am almost 16) and I was accepted into the Kirov Academy of Ballet's year round program! I am so excited and proud of myself! I have worked very hard to get to this point and it is so awesome to have something like this happen!

Congratulations!

But secondly, a downer: there'll be people who have been dancing since age 3 or something, and they'll tell you over and over how difficult it is to go pro, how companies accept maybe one guy out of hundreds and so on and so forth. You might be a little bit behind your classmates in some cases, and if they're mean, they might try to exclude you because you're a late starter. Don't listen to them. If you started this late and made it this far, you probably have enough talent to actually make it. Sometimes it's the late starters who are most successful, because they have enough talent and discipline to make up for a bit of lost training.

But once again, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
