It varies. If you are a couch potato and hate to work, you might it might be too late because of lack of exercise. If you exercise often then, no problem. But if you are in between try it. You might be able to do it.

When did females start to do ballet?

For most dancers, they start dancing around 3 or 4. Although, many start later (7-8). In order to get into a ballet academy, in the hope of becoming a professional, normally you have to be under 12 years old. These strict age limits are to ensure that the dancer has enough time to develop using good technique. Despite this common barrier in the ballet world, many professional dancers have become famous, having started ballet late in life. For example, Misty Copeland started ballet at the age 13 in a girls and boys club. But, keep in mind, most of these dancers had all the right characteristics to succeed, ie good feet, flexible, mental focus, lean body structure and passion! So, overall, if you want a chance to becoming a professional dancer (assuming everything else works out), you should probably start at the latest age of 8. Some others may say earlier or later. Ballet academies will have different opinions, but it is never too late to start dancing simply for the joy of it! :)

Is 15 too old to re-start ballet and modern?

No, 15 isn't too old to start/re-start but its more that it is easier when you have started ballet at a young age because your body is more attuned to the physical pressures of ballet. But if you have done ballet it shouldn't be too bad and at least you'll have some sort of idea of what you are doing! :D

Why are there are number of males in hiphop dancing and less ii ballet?

well with ballet you should start before you 20. And boys are put off by tutus and things like that when they are young.

What AGE should someone start pointe dancing?

The age most Ballet dancers should start pointe danceing is from 11 to 13 years old. If you start pointe too young, you could break your foot It also depends on how well your ankle support is. If you don't have good ankle support you could break your foot easily. I had a question about the answer on the top. I am 11 years old and i have had ballet experience since I was 3 years old. I went to 7 ballet schools they all had mixed opinions. 5 of the schools said I should start pointe at 15 and 2 of the schools said I should start pointe at 12. And my old ballet school said that I should start pointe at 11. What do you think?? Thank you! :)

What age should you start ballet?
