  • Of course. My son has actually showed interest in it, and I feel that its good exercise him, and a lot of athletes take ballet to perform better.

  • Yes. I would like to get them in to ballet earlier than that in fact. Ballet can only help them no matter where they go in their life. It helps with things like balance and speed as well as with confidence and communication. Actors, Public Speakers, Football stars and any number of other "professionals" take or have taken ballet as a way to further their career.

  • Sure. I know one young man who took dance as a young teen. The last I saw of him, he was on So You Think You Can Dance. Made me cry he was soooo beautiful and soooo talented! Anthony Burrell shoulda won!
