Anonymous asked: Would you say someone who went to the royal academy of dance London is a highly professional dance teacher? (My teacher danced there) And is that a great dance school?

I didn’t realise the RAD was a school? The RAD syllabus is incredibly good though, probably the best in my opinion (but it’s all about personal taste).

Anonymous asked: Do you have to be super young to take up ballet? I'm 18 and have always wanted to dance. Is it too late?

There’s nothing stopping you! Start ASAP :)

Anonymous asked: Ok so I'm starting ballet in August and I'm 16. If I trained really hard do you think I could ever get to pointe?

Yes of course :) you may be ready as early as 6 months, or it may take a greater length of time like 3 years. Just keep at it :)
