Too old to dance?

when i was a child i took ballet lessons and exams and it was the love of my life. In fact the only thing i've ever been good at. When i got to about 13 my dance teacher moved away and the only other place for me to go was miles away and my mother didn't drive.
I have always deeply regretted having not pushed more for the lessons and to this day i can't watch ballet without a deep yearning to do it myself.
I know i am well passed the age(nearly 30) for it but does anyone know of any adult ballet classes around manchester or even have any stories similar to mine?

My friend started ballet for the first time when she was 35 and loved it

Thanx but a bit far for me, i live closer to Rochdale. Maybe i will ring a few dance schools. Don't want to end up in a class with fantastic dancers making a fool of myself tho
i can't even turn my feet out into the positions any more, surprising how you stiffen up with age!

I'd just open the yellow pages/thomson or whatever and ring round the local dance centres asking if they offer sessions for beginner adults, IYSWIM. TBH, I think you'd still be considered a beginner despite earlier ballet training 15 years ago.
