    Ballet is probably one of the better activities for someone a little overweight (other than swimming),  as until you do a lot of Grande Allegro which you wouldn't as a beginner,  there is not as much wear on the joints as something like running.  I've had a couple of larger students who have been beautiful dancers.

    Give it a try.

    I'm 5'3" and around 160 pounds and I did ballet from 33-41 years old. If I can do it, you can do it. You will want to find a beginner level class.

    YES! Of course you can start ballet now. There are many good dance academics.  You don’t need to be training to be a professional to learn ballet and to take classes.  They won’t care about your weight.
