Question: The benefits of starting ballet as an adult!?
Hi could anyone tell me whether starting ballet as an adult is a good thing!?

What are the benefits/disadvantages of starting this late (i'm a fit 30yr old)!.

I would like to loose a little weight too if that helps!


Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
When I took (at age 45) I really didn't loose weight, but my joints were so much looser!. My range of motion was so much better!. My muscles were more flexible!. Ballet works your joints and muscle unlike any other kind of exercise!.
I really don't see any disadvantage!.
Many of the ballet academies around me have beginner adult classes, so you are not in with younger students!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

benefits: flexibility increases, more 'you' time, you love ballet (i think), it gets you physically fit, fun, meet new people!.

disadvantages: may not have as much time at home and to do other things, u drive more often which leads to buying more gas, MAY get u frustrated!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Lots of, fitness, flexibility and personal enjoyment for starters!. Go for it, ask yourself what good reasons are there not to do it!.Good luck!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

dress code is usually black leotard with tights or jazz pants but ask the school to be safe!. Good luck and enjoy!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
