Thank you for your queries, it's lovely to hear from you.
By following my career development plan, you can see the gradual stages of what it takes to become a ballerina.
In order to become a ballerina, dancers need to train vigorously at a vocational dance school and later go on to audition for ballet companies to dance professionally.
A vocational ballet school offers a high standard of ballet training, combined with academic education.
At vocational ballet schools they do begin training dancers at the young age of 11. However, I have known many dancers not join a vocational dance school until they are slightly older, perhaps not until they are 16. So it's not too late!
If you are hoping to become a professional ballerina, then take a look through each stage in my career development plan. Gradually evaluate the steps to get an insight on what you have to do to become a ballerina.
It's great to hear you love ballet - never loose that enjoyment!
All the best
