I am enjoying bellydance --still! I would encourage you to try it... If there is more than one teacher in your area, try out a few, because the teacher and the vibe in the class can vary, and finding a place that suits you can make all the difference. Maybe you have no interest in bellydance, but have been wanting to try yoga, or pottery or learning to play guitar... go for it! It is not too late!
