Heyya, My younger sister does ballet and she's 12 and doing grade. She's been doing it for about 4 years. You can get a grade done in a year, that's enough time, you can maybe even squeeze two grades in a year if you work hard enough and dedicate enough time in practising.

A friend of mine started age 15 and as long as you have the right drive, you will move up through the grades and pick up technique really quickly. Ballet is very hard, as I know, but as long as you are willing to practice then nothing should seem overwhelming.
