Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Training in dance usually begins when a child is still young; in fact, ballet dancers often begin between ages five and eight years old. Training may occur in elementary school, where children take dance instruction and participate in dance recitals. Some children also attend special training programs after school and during the summer. Dance companies frequently offer summer programs and admit students who are talented and want to attend. Training continues during high school and many ballet dancers are dancing professionally by the time they are 18 years old.
