Hello Rooh,

Thank you for you query, it is great to hear from you!

In terms of a hobby, of course it is not too late for you to take dance. What have you got to loose? Go for it!

It may prove harder to fulfill a career in ballet, as most professional dancers began training at an earlier age. However, renowned choreographers such as Frederick Ashton and Matthew Bourne both began dance training at a later age and still managed to pursue a successful career within the dance world. So you never know what beginning ballet could lead into the future.

It highly depends on your self-motivation to how you succeed in dancing. The Seven Secrets, on the 'Seven Secrets of Ballet' page, will give you the key answers of how to thrive in your dance classes.

Dance classes will gradually tone your body and strengthen your body. Even so, running is a great idea to help get your body fit and build up your stamina. Also, pilates is an excellent form of exercise alongside ballet to help improve your core stability and tone your body.

Thank you for your encouragement, it is very uplifting to know you enjoy my website!

Keep believing!

All the best,
