its cuz we dance everyday, atleast 4 hour and more on some days!. When were not in dance we watch wat we eat, and generally r alwayz practicing dance, or doing othr physical things!. Ur 14, so most likly if u keep dancing ur going to slim down, unless u eat like a pig!. Yes, u could b professional, if u work for it, and rite now u can work on ur weight but b healthy ab it!.!.!.cuz ur not fat or nethang!. Good luck

Tips: Cut out junk food ex; pizza chips candy bars, soda ect!. limit these 2 mayb once a week
Drink TONS of water
Excersise, run this will hlp w!. stamina also
dance a lot

You don't become a professional ballet dancer by focusing on your weight!. You become a professional ballet dancer by getting the very best training that is available in the country by the top teachers and THEN you starve yourself to keep your contract!. But that is only if you manage to beat the 1-in-50 odds of landing a spot in a company out of all the other top-trained ballet dancers, while having the money to go audition everywhere!.

Seriously, it's not worth it!. You're a great weight right now!. DO NOT try to lose any weight at your age unless your doctor says it's OK! Keep up with your ballet training, but also consider becoming a more versatile dancer in styles that don't require such unnatural thinness!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

and honestly if you are happy with the way you look cause everyone is differnet you honestly dont have to lose any weight!.
eventually itll come off with all your dancing but dont be stressing about it!. and seriously your not heavy at alll!
