    Good book

    Having never been a dancer in life but always in heart, I love to read anything about the Ballet. I loved all three stories, my only criticism was that it was too short, Bravo!!

    Interesting and worth the read

    These three short stories are related and interesting to read. You feel like you get to know the characters and wish there were more stories!
    Would be worthwhile for anyone interested in dance - from teens to adults.

    to simone

    If u started know that would be ok!!!! Ballerinatoes101 is just bragging about hrrself. I started at age 9 and went into prepointe two years later!
    If u want to become a good dancer, read up on some book with pictures and watch videos and listen to ur teachers correction. But most of all...... believe that u can be a good dancer!
    Just work hard and strengthen ur ankled, and you will be up there in know time!
    By the way...... classes can range $90 and up. It depends on how many classes u take in the weeks of the month. And u pay everyday.
    Hope this helped!!!!!
    Where do u live? If u live close to denton texas, my studio is a great chose! It is called Denton Dance Conservatory!

    To Simone

    It seems like you are very determined to do this. I think you are too old to start though. Ballet is very difficult. Yu need to be stronng slim beautiful and graceful. I dance for the state ballet of Rhode Island. I started ballet when I was four and now I am the best in my class. Most dancers go on pointe at 11.5 and you would be left out because you would need to strengthen your ankles. You would have to wait at least 4 or 5 more years of doing ballet before going on pointe. And even then you wouldnt be fully caught up. Any more questions? Post to BallerinaToes101

    Can any one tell me the estimated cost for ballet?

    I have always wanted to be in ballet. I have been streaching everyday and saving up my money from my babysitting job. There is a ballet studio by my house but no one will take me there. I also want to know if the age 13 is to old to start. Please i would do anything to get awnsers from a real person who takes ballet. Any type of information will do. I just need awnsers to help me strive to my dreams.
