well, you seem quite tall (in the gymnastics world) and you also seemly fairly flexible, which is an advantage for rythmic gymnastics. Because you have a few artistic gymnastics skills, that would definatly help in the rythmic side more so than the artistic side. You would probably get further in the rythmic side than artistic, because it is harder to learn big skills when your older. hope this helps! :)

Do whatever you think you would enjoy more; rhythmic is more stretching and ballet, the only 'gymnastics' things the rhythmic team at my gym seems to do are front and back walkovers and variations. Artistic works more skills, so if you enjoy doing backhandsprings and roundoffs you might want to try artistic. You're never too old to start gymnastics, and 5'3" isn't that tall - I'm 5'6" and I can still do everything fine!
