How old is the oldest age any of you know of a female ballet dancer making it into the corps de ballet?
Is 22 or 23 too old?

I'm 19 almost 20 now

Rasberry...

It seems that you would like a professional dance career but are unsure of how to proceed --- or even if such a career is a possibility at this point.

There are a number of professional dancers on this board who could in theory help you sort out these issues. However, you have so far not provided much information about your situation, nor have you provided any way for people to contact you.

Unfortunately, the question you probably want answered the most badly --- "can I make it?" --- cannot be answered, certainly not over the Internet. There is nothing you have said about yourself that indicates you CANNOT make it. However, in dance you don't really know whether you'll make it or not until you do. The future is NEVER certain. All you can do is decide to put time, effort and resources into your training.

If you wish to dance professionally, your current focus needs to be on getting yourself into a training situation that will be good for you as a dancer. You can get the training you need at many schools. Whether or not a school is appropriate for you depends on many factors that have little to do with you as a dancer:
* Can you afford the tuition?
* Can you live close enough to the school to attend it?
* Who will pay for your tuition and living expenses?
* Will you be working another job while attending a ballet academy? If so, what job? What will you have to do to get and keep that job?
* How do you feel about the philosophy and atmosphere of the various schools you're looking at?
* Where are you currently studying? How long? How has that worked out?
* Have you enrolled in a Summer Program for 2004? If not, are you looking to do so?

Be in the right place at the right time dear. That is truley all it is. If they need someone even if it is mid season and you are healthy and there to do it, anyone will take you. Its truely a timing issue only.
