I wanna take up ballet. Do any of the service academies have ballet?
No. But many regular universities, and some SMC's such as TAMU offer both ROTC and the performance arts.
And don't even THINK about trolling this forum if you are not serious.
You may try out for the Bagpipe Band, they wear Kilts if that is your goal. All Celts are warriors and you may not fit in without many years practice with the pipes. If you know Irish dancing or can learn it you might make it but it takes years. DD was an Irish Dancer with these guys. They work hard and do a great job. Nothing like hearing Scotland The Brave across a parade ground.
I know this was a tongue in cheek post, but one of the best known of American Ballet Dancers- Edward Villella - is a friend and classmate of my Dad, and fellow graduate of NY Maritime. He was also a Golden Gloves Boxer. Moral of the story - life is full of unusual paths to greatness!. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Villella#Career
I am serious, ballet is a lot more manly than people think.
And a lot more strenuous than many think. As is any dancing. Even Irish Dancing.
My answer assumed you were serious. My caveat was placed there to ensure:
That you were not trolling.
That no one trashed your post in response.
There is an NFL player, Alex Collins who seriously trains in Irish Dance to improve agility.
I heard that you can start your own club. How would that work?
An earlier thread indicated you were going the ROTC route, perhaps you have changed your mind and now want to attend an SA. I would first focus on what's needed to get an appointment and worry about the clubs/ECA's later.
Get together with other people who have the same interest and put it forward for Club and find a "Coach". You may have to pay your own way. Just remember the dress for many are very expensive. Paid for them for many years. Irish Dance can really help your agility and stamina.
It's going to take some time and effort to catch up with the Chinese and North Koreans..
I could hardly see them for the Camo.
