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?

Is ballet difficult or easy to learn why?

Ballet is sometimes easy to learn it just depends on what kind of ballet teachers you have. It also is sometimes hard because you dont know what steps they will make you do in class.

Where do you learn ballet?

You can start learning ballet at any time. If you start too young, you could get into bad habits, and the Ropyal Ballet School says you should start around 6-7 years of age. You go down to the locakl ballet school, and if you are amazing, auditionj for the Royal Ballet School. Also, go for their Summer School. You learn LOADS, and it is amazing there!!

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!

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 dance class should you join when your 13 and have never tooken a dance class in your life?

Take a few! Ballet is the center of all dance and if you're looking for strong technique, start there. But if you just want to have fun jazz is a great place to start too. Contemporary or modern should come after you have gained some ballet experience. Everything is built off of ballet so I strongly suggest taking it regardless of what you decide. Have fun!

Should you start contempory with little ballet experience?

Contempory ballet is a great style of ballet, but if you want to start contempory, it is best to go in a beginner class so that then you can establish some basic ballet skills before you move on to contempory, as in beginner classes, they usually work on basic ballet skills first, before really moving on to serious contempory. Watch some contempory dances on Youtube, and copy the way the dancer holds themselves, watch their armlines aswell and how their feet are turned out. When you know how to dance Contempory Ballet, you will probably want to join Classical Ballet aswell, as they come as a pair.

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
