Is 31 too old to become a dancer? I have a few years background in ballet and hip hop. I have a job where i travel constantly ( mostly to remote places) so no time for dance anymore. What do you think?

It's never too late to start dancing. If you don't have much time you shouldn't expect great results but simply keeping your body fit and flexible is great. There is a lot of research recently on dancing and the benefits to your brain. Choose a dance form that's easy to do anywhere and easy to find a teacher or at least DVD instruction if you are on the road.

I am 43, I started to dance several years ago. I am happy like a clam :D I was and still am taking A LOT of private classes(that helps), and doing a lot of group classes.

Now every single pair of shoes from . . . was on a competition floor :D better believe it :D I am having a lot of fun at 43 :) and I did not have ballet back ground like you do and I am much older.You certainly can do it !

It is never too late. You just have to have strong passion for it.

To become a dancer is vague.

If you mean is it too old to begin recreational dance lessons, why of course not!

The challenge will be finding a studio with adult classes.

Good luck!
