hi, i was wondering will i be too old to start ballet? i am 15 and live in liverpool 4. i really really really want to do ballet. i did it when i was little from 3 but gave it up when i was 4 or 5. i just got bored with it but i regret giving it up now. i was too young i think and wasn't interested. if i am not too old then could some-body reccomend a ballet place around liverpool? not too far from where i live. i live in liverpool 4. so i don't want anywhere too far. and could some 1 please tell me how much ballet beginners class is and how much all the gear is please. than you so much.

Hannah, let , me tell you something , you are not old!
Im 26 this year and i still do ballet, its to straighten my posture and feet , my feet turned inwards when i was younger , now they dont due to ballet , it feels such an acheivement . I also did ballet like you when i was young , ages 4 to about 7 up after a few years, i gave up oh how i regretted it , then i began to take it up again with a teacher that time i was 16 to 18/19 then i gave up again to practice at home , remembering the moves and with a dvd .
my ballet classes were about 15 pounds and hour and all i wore was leggings and t shirt and ballet pumps of course .
i hope you do take it up again .

No, that's not true!!!!!!!><

The professionals advise female ballet dancers to start at 11 and male ballet dancers to start at around 20!!!!!><

*glowers, storm clouds shooting electric everywhere* You are wrong. Alexander, Gaby, you don't get it. Think you know everything? You know NOTHING. Nothing. A girl can start and 15 and work and work so hard and become professional. It's happened before. It's not the ideal age to start, but it CAN work. Not always, not even often but it CAN!! It's diffierent for guys, but if they can start at 20 and STILL make it, a girl who works hard can manage at 15. So stop squashing people!! Stop it!! And Go Away.

Merry's right. You guys suck. Go away forever.><And Alexander, stop talking like you're the king around here, coz you're not. I read your post in the "Am I Too Heavy?" post, and though you're right, how do you know she ate icecream????You're a pure snob and brat, and you're not welcome in this forum anymore. I can forgive Gaby, coz she just doesn't get it, and she doesn't actlike a Queen, but go away and leave us alone, Alexander.

*gives Emma a tiny grin*
There is nothing for us to get wrong. 15 is not too old. I don't understand you Gaby.
Besides. I think Hannah's long gone. She posted in what...May?

Yeah, that's true ... why'd Alexander and Gaby bring up such a long-gone post, anyway???????

Gaby, I'm not wrong - she is not too old, and I believe the professionals over you.
