  • I have no real experience in the matter, but I know @CœurRosé has experience in dancing.

    From the little I know/researched just now, recreational ballet can be done at any age (well, within reason). At 19 years old, I think you'd have no problem doing it. It would be a good form of exercise :D
    However, for professional ballet, I think you'd need to start in your teens... so for that (even though you said you weren't planning to) I think it is possible but just unlikely at your age.

    But yeah, as far as I know, you can do it recreationally! Go for it!

  • Do it for yourself. For your own good. I play ice hockey for my own good. Not gonna become a pro. Just for fun and exercise. Never too old. Same for you and ballet.

  • Go for it! Anything like that is good for you, and if it gives you pleasure, then what does it matter if you don't make a professional. Enjoyment is more important than anything.

    Good luck with those grades!!

  • As a hobby or interest, you are never too old to do anything - Yoga will help with the flexibility required

  • @dangerDoge is right, you do need to start young to get into ballet professionally. Usually about 9 years old. This is because ballet is very physically demanding and you really need to train your body the right way.

    I don't want to crush your dreams though! You can still do ballet for fun :) But, because it's such a competitive sport, you really do need years and years of practice. Try taking some classes!
