How should I go About starting Ballet again? Am I going to have to start all over? How long will it take to get back to where I was?

I have done ballet up till 2011 since I was 4. I was moved up a class because I was progressing quickly. I was also in pre-pointe. I loved it, the grace, discipline and commitment but it cost way to much to keep goin but now it may be possible for me to start again.

Do you have any advice on staying in shape with a back injury?

I recently had a severe back spasm and have had to take four days off of dance. I may have to take more days off, but in the meantime, do you have any advice on how to stay in shape while having a back injury?

Thanks,

What do you mean about 180 degrees turnouts?

I was confused by what you meant about 180 degrees turnouts. On many tutorial videos there are young girls doing perfect turnouts but there is nothing to suggest they have done it wrong and their teachers say they are doing it right? Should they be able to do it naturally or do you think they are forcing their knees? Also, in one video it said third  position was unnecessary. is this true or was the demonstrator incorrect?
Thanks,

Could I ever make it as a professional ballet dancer without going to the Royal Ballet School?

I looked at all the ballet dancers dancing professionally and noticed that all of them went to the Royal Ballet School in London. Could I ever make it without going there?

Thanks,
Kelley

P.S I do three ballet classes a week and I live in Ireland.
