    Do you mean how long before you can dance for other people? the general public? or as a paid performer? Really depends on your talent, how hard you work, and the quality of your teaching.

    Most students can handle a performance for family and friends in 6-24 months. Probably double that for the GP. I would think a minimum of 5 years - with good tutoring and talent - before considering getting paid work. For many people they will never be ready.

    i'm actually thinking of performing bd for my organisation's dinner and dance next year since the programs are usually performed by the company's employees, but it's definitely not as a paid performer.

    Unless you are working with a good teacher - I'd hold off a bit. You should present a solid performance to your workmates - or you may be embarrassed for years. It takes an experience eye to guide. And you really need some experience with a gentler audience first. You may be suprised how much your dance falls apart under stress.
