Hey all! :D
I was just wondering when you started to learn Ballroom. I started when I was 13, a year ago. Wish I started earlier though. Anyone a late starter like me?

I think some people may get the misconception by this thread that you must start very young to be good at ballroom.

Apparently, Mary Murphy from SYTYCD didn't start seriously until after university (she was previously a modern dancer). And she went on to become a world reknown dancer.

Many of the ballroom styles have a very mature feel to it. That's why you see many of the best dancers are those who are 30+. Experience and maturity count for a lot in ballroom.

I started when I turnned 2.My parents are dance champs and have been for awhile.So you can kinda see why I started so early.I started ballet when I was 3 and latin at 4,umm slow dance at 6, tap and jazz and 7 and last but not least conteporary at 8.I think that starting young helps but its okay to wait untill your older.Im only 16 well I just turned 16 and I love every aspect of dancing and acting too. Keep on dancing

I started Ballet when I was 3.
I took up latin & Ballroom at 11 (which you skipped by the way! So I put 12 lol).
Left Ballet at about 12.
Did Freestyle & Hip Hop for about a year when I was 14
Then I gave up Freestyle & Ballroom/Latin to go back to Ballet!

Ballet's always been my main dance style, but I only left Latin & Balroom because of the studio. I did one competition...there was NO point in us going! I'm taking Dance A or AS level, so maybe one day I'll take up Latin again!
(Freestyle just wasn't for me as much as I loved it!)

i started when i was 13 too! lol and i don't think i'm late at all! My teacher didn't start until he was in college...and WOW! that man is so brilliant-he and his wife came in 2nd in either Heritage or Blackpool(they have been to both). Actually I don't think its ever too late to learn ballroom!

i started to learn ballroom when i could walk. My mum used to teach for a dance school called shereena, we did the supadance league, this was a very long time ago as i am now 17, the dance teachers were paul and gaynor fielding. Ive done it ever since and i now go to phillip blackburn school of dance. Its great i love ballroom and will never stop doin it.
