Answer
I'm sorry for the long wait I have been very busy. As far as how long it takes it really depends on your studio. Try asking your teacher about it. I would see if there are any auditions for ballet stuff for the experience and to get noticed. I would also see if there are any auditions for any companies and take a shot it will be a good experience. I really hoped this helped if you need anything else do a follow up question
