    It's never too late to start dancing, so yeah go for it I started swimming properly when I was 11, and now I can say I've mastered some techniques. Go for it!

    For most things I would say it's never too late, although for physical endeavours there is obviously a limit which will be different for everyone and the later you start the less you can expect to get out of it in terms of reaping what you sow. However, 12 is still very young, I would say you still have plenty of time to pursue ballet if you are really passionate about it and have the discipline to work hard. Take a look at the link below so you're not just taking my word for it - probably the most famous ballet dancer right now started when she was 13.
