Thank you for contacting me it is a pleasure to hear from you.

If you dream to be a professional ballerina, there are certain factors you have to take into consideration to pursue a career such as, where can you train? Can you find a quality teacher to guide you? These are some of the questions you need to ask yourself to make your dreams come true.

Also, age is a huge factor to think about as ballet is a career that starts and most commonly ends at a fairly early age compared to other careers.

It is crucial to follow the right steps if you want to become a professional dancer. 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.

Yet if you want it as a hobby and not a career, of course it is never too late to get started in ballet, no matter where it leads you. If you can find yourself a dance school, a ballet teacher and some lessons then this is a great start. You must take one step at a time.

The secret to success is mental discipline as well as physical ability. Along with the three physical secrets, the Seven Secrets, on the 'Seven Secrets of Ballet' page, will give you the key answers of how to thrive in the dance world.

Best Wishes,
