Many physical activities seem best started in our youth. After all, we seem to have more time, more energy, and more flexibility as young people. However, is it possible to be too old for ballet?
At the International Ballet Academy, we believe the art of ballet should be available to everyone. Whether one is a toddler or twenty years retired, ballet can be enjoyed by everyone. In short, no, you are not too old for ballet!
In fact, ballet continues to offer significant benefits as we age. It is never too late to begin ballet at the International Ballet Academy.
Am I Too Old For Ballet? Not With Adult Beginner Ballet
As adults, it can feel overwhelming to consider a new activity. Whether you are 20 or 80, adult beginner ballet is a great start for any adult. This class is designed for all adults wanting to begin ballet.
Whether you are a former child dancer or you have never worn ballet slippers, adult beginning ballet is for you.
“Have you always dreamed of learning ballet, but never had the opportunity? Perhaps for you, ballet is what you loved to do growing up but have since lost touch while pursuing another career? It is never too late to fulfill the desire within and start dancing. The Absolute Beginner Ballet Workshop is an introductory course for all. It does not matter how much time has passed, we welcome everyone to learn from the very beginning.”
As you can see from the class description introduction, you are not too old to step into adult ballet. At IDI, we strive to ensure the art of ballet is accessible to all. That’s why our Absolute Beginner Ballet Workshop is designed for the newest dancers regardless of age.
Can Adults Fit Ballet Into Busy Schedules?
As busy adults, it can be difficult to find time to squeeze in a new activity. With the unique online platform of the International Ballet Academy, we make it possible for everyone to fit ballet into their routine.
All our training is down at your own pace and in your own space. This means no commutes to a dance studio during rush hour after a long day at work. There is no stress if you get busy and miss a week. This is truly designed to be done at your own pace.
As soon as you register, you will have immediate access to the first week’s lessons. You can go through the nine-month program at your own pace, taking your time to master each skill. Whether you train multiple times per week or once a week, our program is designed to fit into your busy schedule.
You will have access to all the prerecorded lessons. However, what makes our program unique is the combination of those asynchronous lessons with our live monthly lessons. You will also have access to our community page to connect with faculty, dancers, and the International Ballet Academy families.
Are you too old for ballet? Are you too busy for ballet? Not with our unique program.
