Career Development Plan - Too late to dance professionally?






I know that you can start dance at any age, but I really wanted to dance professionally but I'm not sure if 15 is too old. I just started ballet but have done other types of dance in the past. Is there any way that I can improve myself fast enough to be a professional dancer? Or is it too late?

Hello Maggie,

Thank you for coming to me, it's great to hear from you!

If you haven't already, I truly recommend you reading the Seven Secrets ..... go to my 'Seven Secrets of Ballet' page. These secrets hold a lot of valuable information that will make a positively big difference to your whole approach to ballet.

There is no fast track to becoming a professional dancer, it takes years of dedicated training to build the strength of a professional. All you can do is commit to your training. Work hard, remember your corrections, push yourself and keep striving. It is not too late for you in terms of your age, as I have known of dancers who train within their hometown until the age of 16 and then move to a vocational school to pursue a career in ballet.

By following my career development plan, you are on the Take Action stage. You are now contemplating on taking up dancing as your profession which means you need to assess where best place is for you to train.

If you are serious about becoming a professional dancer, a vocational dance school will provide you with the most advantageous opportunities for you to become a professional. At a vocational school students can start training from the early age of 11 right up until they are 18.

There is a leading vocational dance school in your area, Boston Ballet School. The school offers comprehensive classical ballet training and the students have gone on to successful careers in various areas of dance. Take a look at their website,. www.bostonballet.org/school.html

All the best,

Odette

Hello Stephania,

Thank you for contacting me, it is great to hear from you.

If you are determined to fulfill your dreams in ballet, then follow the Personal Development Plan which are the gradual stages to becoming a professional dancer.

It will hugely depend on your current ability and the action in which you take to whether you can pursue a professional career in ballet. It is crucial to follow the right steps if you want to become a professional dancer.

In terms of your age, it is not too late too pursue a career in dance. In most cases, ballet dancers rigorously train until at least the age of 17 or 18 before considering a job in a ballet company. Therefore, you still have time left to pursue a career.

Now, for you, it would be a case of assessing where the best place is to train in order to become a professional. It is the intense, regular training that is most crucial for aspiring professional dancers.

I believe a vocational dance school will provide aspiring dancers with the most advantageous opportunities for you to become a professional. These schools are located around the world and offer training for young aspiring dancers from the early age of 11 right up until they are 18.

All the best,

Odette
