What does level 5 mean in ballet?

Level 5 in ballet is a advanced level you can get stronger in. In ballet 1 you learn the basics. In ballet 2 you learn more steps but still not to advanced. In ballet 3 you learn some more steps and get a little more advanced. In ballet 4 you get stronger and more steps and at that point your feet get stronger and when your feet are strong enough your teacher decides if you go up on pointe or not yet. After 3 or 4 years in ballet 4 you go to ballet 5. ballet 5 is a very advanced class and is the highest level you can get to!

Am I ready for en pointe dancing if you have only danced ballet for 2 years but practices every day for an hour and is fexiable age 13 and has strong ankles?

Unfortunately, not. I am 12 and have danced ballet since I was 2, and I dance all the time, but I am still not ready to go on pointe. I will be going on pointe soon, but until then I am working on the strength of my ankles. 2 years dance experience sadly, isn't enough. I was very impatient when I was growing up, wanting to go on pointe, and I nearly gave up ballet. But don't give up ballet just because you aren't ready for pointe shoes, as ballet flats are still as good. If you are really serious about ballet, and you want to go on pointe in the next two/three years, tell your dance teacher that you are keen to push on and explain to her/him that you will work hard to progress. I wish you all the best with your ballet.
