    As for being too old, no way! 35 you are just a baby! I am 60, started dancing at in my 55th year. I won't ever be a professional, but maybe one day I will teach. But for the moment I perform at haflas, and other community events but mainly in a group.

    One of my instructors is 48 the other is 32. The 48 year old started dancing when she was about 35, the other has been dancing since she was very young, both dance professionally and of course teach.

    If you practice, practice, practice and dedicate yourself to the dance ( it tends to take you over)there is no reason why you couldn't become a teacher and performer, but to get to that point i do believe you need to have formal instruction, DVDs etc are good to reinforce, but a good instructor/s can correct any problems and it is really a lot easier to advance with hands on instruction.

    Go for it and just enjoy - dance from the heart!

According to one source I've read, in most Middle Eastern countries, a dancer who's in her 30's or 40's is considered to finally "be in her own," so to speak. Dancers are lovely, no matter what the calendar says.
    Thanks again Farasha, I'm so glad I discovered and joined this forum! Cheers to female empowerment!!! (hugs)
