it's never too late to learn just might be tougher for you to learn the moves

i think that you should give it a go! I started late too and I've just received Very Highly commended (85-89%) in my Ballet exam!


No, absolutely not. You can begin learning ballet at just about any age--now to actually go pro... well, it's best to start earlier. B-movie superstar Jeff Fahey took ballet at 25 and won a scholarship to dance with the Joffrey (a rare exception, but it does happen).

Enjoy yourself. Go and learn.


Go for it. If you wanna learn something new, then why not? But don't expect to be a professional in one week. Now that you started late, you have to work harder and it will take time. Believe me, ballet is not easy. You will need to train for several years before you are ready to be in any company. But don't make that or your age discourage you. Ballet is a wonderful learning experience and can lead you to much success.

No, it is not too late as long as you are at least a bit flexible.

Is 13 a good age to start studying ballet?

I am 13 and interested in studying ballet as well. Although I believe it is never too late to do anything, it will be really difficult to learn. Ballet has many different positions to learn and jumps to learn. And you must be EXTREMELY flexible. Most children start when they're really young. But if you really want to do it, then do it.(: Don't be discouraged though, I am 13 and have never done ballet before now in my life.(:

No, its never too late to start ballet. However, you may want to take a class on the basics, and ballet may not come as easy to you as it does to others your age who have taken it for years. With dedication, you can catch up, although you may have less of a chance to preform professionally.

Can you teach yourself ballet?

I do not think you can. There are so many things you can learn. All the words used in ballet are french so you would need to learn those words. You need to be able to point out the details used in ballet. For example, in jazz, when you do a pirohuette turn, your leg by your knee is parallel and in ballet it is turned out. In ballet you all ways use opposites too. Also, you need to learn all the positions. When you do a performance, you don't always smile too. So you probally could not teach yourself ballet.
