Hello mirna,

Thank you for your message it's great to hear from you. If you look at the personal development plan you will see there are very specific stages a ballerina must go through in order to become a professional. Your age is a key factor in this process and many dancers think to themselves, is it too late? Because you must be aware most ballerinas reach a professional from the ages of 18 or 19. Therefore, their training has already taken places in their younger years so they are ready to start their career.

I hope you understand this and you may find time will not work in your favour if you wish to become a ballerina now. However, I encourage you to read my eBook section "Virtue 6: Time" , where you can see more clearly about the stages of a ballerina.

Best wishes,
