    My life is rather hectic due to work, travelling, university and the million other things I do, but I always try to dedicate time on dancing. Usually I attend at least two 1-1,5 hour classes a week + spend an hour practising the technical stuff at least once a week at home. oh, and like Viv, I do my shimmies while doing the dishes or waiting for the traffic light to turn green

    Oh, but have you noticed that it is summer outside? So much for regularity

    Default hi :)

    I like to get in an hour in the morning and an hour later in the day or evening.
    but somedays like today I got in 45 minutes,I figure little is better than nothing at all,and my body felt a little tired like it needed a rest too.

    do you practise dancing to music after your dvd tutorial?just choose something you connect with and let your body free,or work on one move...


    hope this helps!!

    I'm time-poor. I commute three hours a day, and don't have time after dinner to practice or work out. I'll work on small, discreet isolations while on the train and at my desk, though, along with shimmying and dancing while doing housework!

    Wow, you all practice a lot! :eek:

    Before my course stopped because of summer holiday, I had weekly lessons of 1 1/4 hour. I also practiced one or two hours on friday evening and sometimes also other evenings.

    I must admit it's almost a month ago since a danced. I'd expected to miss dancing a lot during the summer, but that's not the case ()
    Probably because it's very warm now. My room is extremely warm so I feel more like going to the park, reading a book while sitting in the shade and eating ice cream

    ah moon,i think its good to have a break sometimes,you will dance amazingly when you next dance


    When I went to see the bellydance superstars, I asked one of the dancers how much time they spend practising, she told me 5 hours a day on average. When I asked Bozenka, she said to just fit practise in whenever you can within your daily routine. I believe she was saying..'just go with the flow'.
    michelle,how inspiring!!!wow!!! that had to be an amazing experiance,to meet up and be able to get answers to your questions.

    thankx for sharing
