im 15 and do competitive cheerleading i would love to take dance is it too late for me to start ballet?

i have been doing competitive cheerleading for 4years and did gymnastics for 5 years. I'm 5'10 have a muscular build and I'm very flexible. i never had the opportunity when i was little to take dance but iv always dreamed of taking ballet. i know most girls start when they're young is it too late for me to start. i do catch on to things quick and i have dance experience with gymnastics and cheerleading.

    If you were to search the resolved questions on this site you would see that out of the five million "is it too late to start ballet" questions, no one answering say "yes it is."

    It is never too late. ballet is beneficial no matter what your age. you have great experience for a late starter and should progress quickly if you work hard. Give it a shot! Ballet is wonderful.

    Hey! well if you really want to learn i say go for it! Life is about learning and gaining new skills.. if you dont expect to be the most amazing dancer in the world then you will be fine. dont jump into something expecting to be the most perfect at it. it will take a lot of work and time and all the things you are used to so again i say go for it!:) Oh and there are diff types of dance that you can use your tumbling and jumps skills to good use!:)

    yes your too late most ballet instructors expect their dancers to be experienced and it would extremely difficult for you to learn and catch up quickly because a lot of ballet dancers start at a very young age
