For some reason i have been captivated by Ballet it seems so beautiful and powerful Telling a story through dance, something evokes a lot of passion inside me It also would challenge me athletically, the oise and balance as well as the flexibility and strength to dance for extended periods of time I would like to start, but have no clue how or where or if i am too old
YES! Ballet is amazing, it really gives you a lot of emotions and satisfactions. I have been dancing since I was a little girl and I honestly would suggest it to anyone.
It's not too late at all. Actually men have it a little easier when it comes to ballet, since you don't have to prepar yourself to get on pointe (which takes a couple of years), your process of learning how to properly dance ballet is quite shorter. Of course, it's easier to learn when you're younger, but let's face it, when you're younger everything is easier to learn.
There are many schools with classes for adults who are just starting, which proves that it's never too late. You should search the internet and find some of these schools (maybe with summer classes for beginners), than you can try and see if you like it. They should give you a free pass to 2-3 classes as a start and you could also check out other dance styles if you want to.
Being martial arts for so long, i can definitely say I admire ballet dancers, so athletic and nimble. I try doing a few jump spinning kicks and what not and I'm tired, they do 100 and barely break a sweat.
Hey ballet is actually one hell of a work out, my friend Natalie does ballet, and he is the biggest guy I know (bigger than anybody on the football team), I mean he is a good 270 ibs of sheer muscle, I would go for it man
