I am 26 and definitely not the oldest dancer competing. Just came back from Champion of Champions in Adelaide and there were a few 'girls' older than me competing in the restricted sections. At our Newcastle competitions there are some older dancers too.

Maybe start at some smaller competitions and see how you feel? It's a more relaxed atmosphere than the larger competitions with all the champion level dancers. Newcastle will be having another comp soon (not a championship) and we'd love to have you there :)

Didn't even start until over 30! There's usually one other older person at any given competition, but sometimes not. So what? Go for it. :)
