I'm 13 and I want to learn how to dance. How do I do this?

A lot of people tell me that if I want to learn how to really dance I should have started at a younger age. I'm very dedicated and determined to learn how to do this, but I don't know where to start...

You start with a beginner ballet class. Hopefully you can find a teen beginner ballet class. Ballet is where you get all your dance technique from so you can move on to other dance genres if you wish.

Just so you feel better, Misty Copeland took her very first dance class at age 13. She is currently a Principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre. So it can be done. Not that it is a likely story for you as it isn't a likely story for anybody. Most who start dance at age 7 or 8 which is the earliest real training begins, will never reach the professional ranks. But that has little to do with age and more to do with the facility and musicality they were born with along with the right bone and muscle structure and world class training.

There is no reason why you can't do this and reach your personal best.
