Late-starters: Here's some encouragement


Recommended Posts

This news is filling me with joy, and I wanted to share in case there are any late-starters (or parents of late-starters!) who could use a boost today.


A family friend who started ballet at 12 years old and went to a recreational school for four years before realizing she needed serious training,  just got a contract with a Russian ballet company at 20 (I won't name it to preserve her anonymity.) 


Courage, all!

Hi Aixsta!


It was definitely a lot of hard work, but it was also a relentless search for proper teaching, which can be tremendously difficult to find, depending on where you live! She gave herself many different experiences and learned what worked for her own body -- professionals need to be their own teachers ultimately, and she learned to do that really well along the way!
