Having been here at ATS for quite a few years now, I just wanted to share a more personal side of myself with the community I've come to love-

RIght on! My grandmother was a ballet instructor and had a studio in manhattan. My cousin is also a dancer and been in a few movies. Cool that dancing is your muse through life. Instead of going to work at some cubicle you've succeeded in doing what you love and making a living at it, and that cool in my book.

See you in the threads.

When I was in my early teens I trained with The New York City Ballet for a few summers, and also did the Nutcracker in Albany with them for a few seasons .
I grew up in Albany, so I've spent a decent amount of time in the city- do you happen to remember the name of her studio?

My 11 year old daughter is wanting to start ballet lessons.

Any advice or tips for a beginner?

Wow you are crazy talented!

Never saw that coming....but excellent late introduction! The dancing is excellent and really, really good. I am duly impressed. That has to be quite an active hobby and it looks like you are in fantastic shape.

I don't pay attention to or even see that kind of dancing very often, but seeing your take at it really makes me appreciate the hard work and dedication involved in it.

Great job!

Well the studio was from before my time. My grandmother's passed away and would have been in her early 90's now. So it was a long time ago. I want to say it was from the mid 50's to the early 70's, because she was running it when my mom was growing up and then into her 20's. I can call my mom and get back to you. She remembers. Or maybe I can text my cousin if she's not on location , she's usually pretty good at getting back to me. She'll know too.

Sorry I don't know more about it. I went the musician route instead...and then capitulated into doing the 9-5.

That's why I'm stoked you're succeeding at doing what you love.

I've got 26 years of advice!

First do some research, online/ask around, about all the local studios- Then let her take some trial classes in ballet, tap and jazz- summer is coming which is the perfect time to test the waters- trial classes should cost around 10-15$/hour - anything more than that is a rip-off. Once enrolled for the year, however, prices vary- typically for a young beginner taking 1 hour/week, you are looking at anywhere between 30-75$ per month- and that doesn't include all the shoes, tights, leos, leg warmers, etc.
Also costume and recital fees that vary drastically depending on the studio.

You should get a discount for each additional class (every studio/academy I've ever heard of does this) so oftentimes taking two or three classes costs only 5-10$ more per month, but you'll have to dish out for the extra costumes.

That said, if it's affordable, I highly recommend she take at least jazz class along with ballet (some studios require this) because beginner ballet at that age can be overwhelming- from my experience , both as a student and instructor, pre-teen beginner classes tend to include a range of experiences- one student may have taken combo when she was 3-4 years old, another might be returning as a second year, another may have never worn a pair of ballet shoes until that first day in class.
Does that make sense? lol

A reply to: ltinycdancerg 20 hrs a week for 26 years...

You've put in an approximate total of:

965.4 weeks
6,760 days
26,040 hours
1,562,400 minutes
93,744,000 seconds

Of your life dedicated to dance. That is considered at 20 hours a week and 5 day weeks for 26 years. Variance comes with added hours plus or minus which I'm sure you have plenty of more time than you say.

Color me impressed!

Beautiful work young lady! Much luck to you in your dancing endeavors!

Hey dancer,

Question for ya. Who are your influences in dance? Do you have any favorite youtube personalities? Actresses that dance? Broadway divas. Thought it would be cool to hear about your influences and who inspires you to keep going/ evolving with your expression of dance.

So who's on your radar?
