I don't really think there are average ages for the different levels. Yes, some of it depends on your age when you start, but a girl i know has been dancing for seven years and just recently moved out of novice. Another girl has been dancing for four or so years and is in prelims. That's one of the great things about irish dance. If you work hard enough, you can achieve anything. Literally.

And plus, Micheal Flatley was 11 when he started. That's only three years younger than you, and look what he's done.

Well, I could guess the average age for each level, but it'd just be a guess and so it wouldn't be very helpful.

I think that most of the dancers in Riverdance and Lord of the Dance started when they were practically babies, so starting little is an advantage, but it's not impossible for an older dancer to get that good.
