Is it too late to get a flat turnout in ballet?

NO, it takes lots and lots of practice. You should set aside time each day to practice and also try to stretch the muscles in your legs and hips more. This skill is the result of mostly flexability and many hours of stretching and practicing. You will get it soon enough.

Turnout is something people are pretty much born with or without. However, you can work on it and improve your turn out, but it takes a lot of dedication. To make it as a ballerina, you need to be very turned out.

my ballet teacher says that if you are not born with flat turnout you will never have perfect flat turnout but, you should always keep working on it in frog (back and front) and other excersizes, and you will achieve YOUR best possible turnout.
