Starting Dance When Your In Your Teens

First things first, Darcey Bussell didn’t start dancing till she was 11, Martha Graham did start dancing till she was 17, If any one tells you its too late THEIR WRONG!d083d27d0563e19b82c8513acc91ef0b

Don’t Worryย  (i know easier said than done right) not only is it more common than you’d think and its down to you how far you want to take it! Who’s to say you wont be the next Misty Copeland, she started when she was 13. I’d recommend looking at what classes are offered in you local area find one that suitable for beginners and no by this i don’t mean asking to attend a 4 year old’s class when your 25 hahaha ๐Ÿ˜› . Start of with a fun class aimed at teen beginners like our superstars class. You want a class that friendly and will cater to you needs, theirs no point doing something if you don’t enjoy it you will learn more if your having fun!

Work Hard! – Just because you start dancing in your teens doesn’t mean you wont be just as good if not better than a dancer who started when they were 2. Its all about hard work passion and drive.


Don’t judge yourself by what others can achieve-

Passion, drive and the want to learn will get you further than talent will alone. Recognize your own strengths and weaknesses don’t focus on other dancers strengths around you they could be more flexible but you might be able to jump higher or pick up routines faster. Own your own ability and work hard to improve you weaknesses and strengthen your strengths. Be YOUR best.

Dream Big-

Go all in, no one made history by dreaming small! Do what makes you happy there’s no point getting up every morning to do something you hate.

If you’re positive and willing to learn nothing can stop you

Lots of Dance Love
