Am I too old to start ballet classes only for fun?

I am 17 now and me and my friend wanted to join a ballet school next year,but we only want it for fun,not professional etc...And I'm not sure if I will manage to be as elastic as those girls who joined it much earlier. But,anyway,what do you think guys? Do you know someone like me? Did it work? Thanks!
