Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
I think that's wonderful that you aspire to be a ballet dance teacher!. I started ballet when I was also 15 and danced through high school and then in college!. I didn't want to be a teacher but I love to dance!. I totally think you can do it!. I know some of my friends taught ballet when they were in high school!. Some times you can ask to be a student teacher for younger baby classes!. As you get better, you might be able to teach older classes!. I also remember some older college students getting a teacher's certificate from my ballet school and they got to choreagraph dance recitals and teach senior ballet classes too!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Yes definitely you can become a teacher!.

Unfortunately, anyone can open up an dance studio!. Even people completely untrained in it!. DO NOT DO THIS!. Although there are no law requirements for a ballet teacher, you should still have credentials and qualifications! If not the you will be another one of those people out there giving poor training and breaking children's hearts!.

There are pathways you can take to become a teacher!. Sure a college degree is great, but i personally think it is much better to go through a dance or ballet syllabus and become an accredited tech with them!. Syllabuses like RAD, BAL, BBO, ISTD, CSTD etc offer teacher accreditations!.

If you do not already, I would find a dance studio or ballet school which focuses on a syllabus!. I'm not too sure about each different syllabus, but generally you have to have taken exams with the syllabus, and further study to gain teacher qualifications!.
