Question: Can I start dancing at age 14!?
I really want to get into dancing!. But am I too old to start learing again!. I used to dance when i was 5 on & off till age 11!. I have taken gymnastics,baton,cheerleading, and dance but that was when I was smaller!. I'm scared that it will be too hard & the other girls that were doing it since they were 2 will get annoyed or not like me!. What class do you think I should take!? What should I do!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

i say go for it!.!.!.the other girls won't be annoyed or anything!.!.!.cause most of those girls have been dancing together since they were little and they will want a fresh face!.!.!.you would be someone new to talk to for a change!.!.!.i think that you should take classes that interest you!.!.!.but i would make sure you take ballet cause ballet is like the core of all dance styles!.!.!.then take something fun!.!.like jazz, tap , or hip-hop or even try them all!.!.!.whichever you perfer!.!.!.the jazz and the hip hop will proabaly be easier to start with then tap cause unless you have taken it before it can be pretty difficult!.!.!.

Hope you have fun dancing : )Www@QuestionHome@Com

of course you can start dancing again! i help teach at my mums dance school (ballet, modern, jazz, street and tap) and we quite often get girls joining who used to dance and want to get back into it, or even girls who are older and just beginers! they always fit right in and say they were realy worried about starting again but are glad they did!.

choose a style of dance you fancy learning and then look around for classes in your area, good luck :)Www@QuestionHome@Com

Really if you have experience you should go for it if you want, I started when I was 11 and I want to go professional!. So really you can do dance whenever you want!.
on the dance classes which ever one you want first but i suggest ballet for a while because it's the base of all dance no matter what you do!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

i think u should dance cause thats what u really want to do cause gymnastics and cheerleading is for flexible and athletic girls and dance is for anybody that want to do it even if there first timers or rusty!. theres different types of styles of dancing so you choose the 1 u want to do and dont about worry about if others like you why should you care there to learn how to dance not how to make friends!. like my mother always said your never to old to learn no matter how old u is!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You don't have to be good at dancing!. I have been dancing for 6-7 years!. I have tried to do the splitz and I am not very good at them! So don't worry!. Some of my friends have just started dancing and they do just fine!. So I know you will too! Do what class you want to, who cares what the other girls think!. Just ignore them and try your best!Www@QuestionHome@Com

im almost 15 and when i was going into middle school i started dancing on the dance team!. i was on the middle school dance team 4 two years!. and i made the high school dance team but i had to quit because it was $1,500!.
its not fair that u have to have to pay so much to do that!. like only people with lots of money can be on the dance team!. sry 4 talking about me but just thought i would tell u how much MOOLAH u have 2 spend!. and if u are good at dancing then u should join whenever u want!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

People start beginners dance classes at the age of 40! Dont think yo cant start dancing if that what you want to do!. You can do anything you put your mind to!. Just stretch a LOT before your first class, because those girls are flexible! And just try your best, you may be really good and you dont even know it yet :) Good luck!Www@QuestionHome@Com

u can do whatever class u like and whatever age u like, theres no boundries!.

the girls WILL like u, and they will take u under their wing and help u settle in!. girls are like that they are always looking for new friends to join their little gang!.

go for it, u only live once xxWww@QuestionHome@Com

Ask the dance instructor to evaluate your skills and abilities and recomend a class for you!. You might be in a class with younger students, but with you other experinces, I'm sure you'll catch on quickly!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

it'd be fine if you started dancing again!. (itsthebestsport :))

what classes are options for you!?
In my opinion high kick, jazz, and hiphop are best!. thats what i take!.


It's not too late to start dancing!. You might not be flexible enough for tougher stuff like ballet, but even then, I wouldn't let it go without a try!. Plus, there are a range of dances to choose from!. You just need to see which suits you best!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

if its something you really want to do then you should totally go for it!. you can start to learn at any age!. i know a guy that didnt start dancing until he was 19 and hes an amazing dancer!. youll just have to work really hard for it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Dang, let go of your fear!. You're never too old to learn something and so what if you're not as advanced as others your age!. That should just motivate you to practice more and try harder! Forget your age, just do what you love and forget about what others think!!Www@QuestionHome@Com

you could take private lessons until you feel that your good at it, or just do it and not care what the other girls think!.eventually, you will be good enough to show them!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

most of the time they have special classes for people who are older and are beginning!.
the same thing happened to me!. I did ballet from age 2 to 11 then i quit!. I took it up again when i was 15!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
