    I had also just gone sixteen when I started. I've been hooked ever since.

    I'm going to be nineteen in 7 days (26th lol)

    I started "dabbling: with DVDs at about 26. Took a couple of lessons from a friend of my sister-in-law a couple years ago. Started with Yasmine last summer at 30. Hooked for life. I'm a mom, too. Have a two-year old daughter who I hope will become a rakkasah!

    I was 12 years old when I started formal lessons but my mother is a Belly dancer, caught the 70's belly dance fever, so I had early exposure.

    Default ooh

    I always loved watching belly dance as a teen,took my breath away.
    I started dancing at 29 years of age.
    I was thinking yesterday how I wish I would have started sooner,but then right now seems perfect,and by the amount I dance I am certainly making up for it!!

    I started at 21, and have been dancing for three years now. Oddly, I have never actually thought that "I should have started earlier". It sort of goes the other way - I can't wait til the day I have aqcuired enough experience... Even though I am not sure this moment will ever arrive, huh?

    I wish I had started younger but my friend (whose also my teacher) says that things happen when the time is right. I don't think I would have been as devoted if I had started at a different time in my life.

    I started at the age of 29, took lessons for 2 years in a lebanese restaurant (what a gorgeous and unforgotten time). I restarted last year at the age of 39 and now I wish I was 8-10 years younger but with the same life experience.

    I noticed that in Germany most BD'ers start taking classes when they are in their 30's or 40's.

    What about your impression in your countries?

    I was 20 when I started to take lessons (I'm 21 now)

    I was 16 when I discovered it was possible in the Netherlands to take lessons, but I didn't had the money myself at that moment and I didn't want to ask my parents cause they were already paying for my music lessons.
