Hi Kev!

I started my dance instruction at age 15, but this was with a locally-reknown modern dance teacher. She encouraged me to take ballet, but I didn't begin ballet training until age 19.

I continued to take classes in both modern and ballet through college, then was invited, well persuaded, to dance for a ballet company--no auditions--this was a company that really needed male dancers, and I had just graduated with a BA in dance. I continued to take class, and also rehearsed with the company--good hard work--for many years.

I last danced on the stage at age 45, ten years ago. I'm retired now, but I'm still active in dance and yoga.

Keep On Dancing!

Hey gang! (this is my first post in about two years, BTW)

I started at the age of 16 as I felt that it would be too emasculating have my mother drive me to ballet classes. So, I waited until I could drive myself!

It has been several years since my last class as I have been attending graduate school (and have just finished!). I am hoping to get back into good enough shape to take classes again, but time, schedule, money (etc) will tell.

I started ballet when I was 36. However, I have always wanted to take ballet since I was like 10 or 12. I have been dancing 4 years now.

Serious training at 18...Im moving fast, but my balance and flexibility is holding me back from more impressive things.

I was 18. I never did serious training though. I mainly did it to explore other horizons and really got into it. I did it more for my own personal enjoyment than anything.

I started at 18 or so its hard to remember that far back though i should because it was in the era when you got beat up if you danced ballet. I danced till I was married that would be when I was 30 something quit for a long time as life swept by. I had an "event" in life decided that I should do what I want befour it is to late to do it at all. I started back 2 years ago in a company school. I am getting better loving every moment and regretting the time lost. I am by the way 60 years old.

I started dancing when I was 16. Thats because my parents never approved of it and told me that I would have to pay for it myself. So I got a job and have been in love ever since!!

I started ballet when I was 42 and am doing it now for 9 years. I am not far but would call my level as advanced beginner.

looking at these comments I'd say not, but am I too old to start ballet. I'm 15 (just turned in December) and I've been doing ADFP Disco dance since I was 12. I've been approached by someone to start ballet. However my Dad thinks I'm too old, what do you think?
