• How do I learn how to dance?

    I’m 19 in three weeks and a man so it’s weird but I want to learn. Can’t find classes for adults though. I hear ballet is a good starting point but I think even the instructor would think I’m dumb

  • I'm a fourteen year old girl, is it too late to start taking dance classes .?

    Best answer: Recreational dance is for anyone of any age shape and abilities. Starting at 14 in a teen beginner class and you should do just fine. If you were born with the right gifts for dance (body, facility and musicality) you can easily surpass others who were not born with those gifts who started as very young children.... show more

If you were born with the right gifts for dance (body, facility and musicality) you can easily surpass others who were not born with those gifts who started as very young children. The only thing you are too old for is a career as a professional ballet dancer. With the right gifts and the right full time professional level training you could even go as far as a career as a dancer. Just not a professional ballet dancer. It is harder starting at age 14 but not impossible IF you are born gifted and IF you get the right training. But for fun, 14 is a great age to start recreational dance.

    If you want to be your very best, start with a teen beginner ballet class. Even if ballet doesn’t interest you as much as other dance genre. That is where you get all your dance technique from. See if you can take 2/3 classes a week. Don’t add other genre for at least a year or two so you won’t create muscle confusion.

    There is no reason you can’t do this.

  • Is it too late for me to start learning how to dance?

    I'm 18 years old and I'm beginning to gain an interest in dance, but I'm scared that I'm too old to really start learning or that I won't be able to find any classes or lessons or anything for an 18-year-old beginner.

    I'm 18 years old and I'm beginning to gain an interest in dance, but I'm scared that I'm too old to really start learning or that I won't be able to find any classes or lessons or anything for an 18-year-old beginner. I'm mostly interested in hiphop (like Sean Lew, Kaycee Rice, Julian Deguzman, etc.) I did tap for a short period of time when I was 7, but my mom pulled me out because I would get too nervous for recitals because of my shyness and stage fright & I'm scared I will still be like that. If it's not too late for me, what tips would you have for someone starting out who is my age? Should I learn on my own, take classes, do private lessons..? And should I learn other styles as well (like ballet or anything to practice flexibility and technique and things like that)? And any tips on dealing with anxiety and shyness and becoming more confident (bc I'm honestly nervous about having to dance in front of anyone else)? Thank you :)

  • How can I get better at ballet?

    I can't do pirouettes no matter how hard I try and when I try to do glissades they just look like an awkward, clumsy jump. Is it just a case of more practice or do you have to be a natural?

  • Are the steps in ballet hard to learn?

    I suppose it depends on the person but ballet doesn't seem to come naturally to me. For example, I tried doing a glissade and it just looked like an awkward clumsy jump. Can I get better or is ballet just not for me?

The tuition per month is a bit expensive for me, but this is something i really want. I was thinking of asking the studio owner if i could help out at the front desk, with little kid’s classes, or with anything they may need to help bring the price down a little? Would this be strange to do, or is it something that i should try? I wasn’t sure if this would be weird or not.

    I know this sounds crazy, but listen. I wanted to dance when I was much younger, but my parents held me back because that wasn't something they thought would be useful for me in the future. Following that in high school I tried joining the beginners dance class, but later found out it was full so I couldn't join. For the longest time I've just wanted to dance, and do what I wanted since a young age and even now. Next year is my last year in highschool and auditions for the dance team are in about a month and a half. Right now I have so much free time in the summer, and I want to learn how to dance. I am so willing to committing hours upon hours to learn. I just really want to make it and I feel like this is my last chance. Tips? Thoughts?

  • Taking ballet shoes to the gym?

    At my local gym, there is a second level with floor to ceiling mirrors, some weights, and some mats. There are never more than 3 or 4 people up there so it wouldn’t be like I’m in the way or bothering people, pretty sure there is a bar there too. It would only be basic bar work with my pointe shoes.

I graduated high school and didn’t continue dancing after, but I have a few expensive and nicely broken in pointe shoes that I’d love to work out in. Thoughts?
