Hi There, It is absolutley not too old to start Ballet at 11. I started ballet in 2001 when i was 12 and now I am in the New Zealand school of dance. Good Luck =)
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! :)

you can start ballet at any age there are classes for 2 year olds all the way up yo adult. It is a common misconception that you have to be young to start ballet, i started when i was 13 and now im en pointe and as good as my friends how have been doing it since they were four. so please dont be put off by your age ballet is wonderful no matter how old you are !! :)
well to do a course of royal academy of dance, you can start to learn before you start school (2-3 years old). i do RAD ballet at a normal local dance school and to start you don't have to know anything about ballet. BUT to get into the original school in London you have to qualify to be a professional, so YES in that case you do have to be very GOOD! =] hope this helped =]
I started ballet when i was 14 and i was completely inexperienced, and now i am 16 and a professional. :) with heaps of hard pratice probs it will take you bout 1-2 years. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
See I did ballet from the ages of 2-11 then stopped my lessons, after completing a grade 4 exam. I then carried on doing tap, modern and ballroom dancing. I wish to take up ballet again. What standard should I get lessons at? Go back to grade 5, or because of all my other experience go higher?

Not if that 11-year old is about 2-meters tall.
Ballet is the same now as it was in the 1600s. Ballet has 2 techniques, Cecchetti or Russian. Today most children ballerinas are learning the Cecchetti style of ballet. But, mostly most ballerinas are very well techniqued because ballet is a form of art and is most beautifully done as a more old fashioned piece of dance. Compared to modern or hiphop.
