    Default Where do you practice?

    Those with their own studios I'm sure don't have such a problem but I just wondered where did everyone else practice at? I just don't feel like I have a good space to practice like I'd like. I feel like my room at home is just too crowded...I mean you don't have to have a lot of space to practice a lot of the moves but I like to be able to move around and the routine that I've been practing requires some space. I really like to practice at work. We have an employee exercise room and it has mirrors! That's another reason I don't like to practice at home because I don't have mirrors where I can see myself. The problem at work is someone always comes in there when I'm practicing and I"m not comfortable practicing with people in there...so I often end up quitting before I'm ready to...so I'd really be practing a lot more if I had a good space to do it at.

    I rehearse in the dance stuido at my gym. It's an amazing space!!! it's private and free for me to use whenever I want for as long as I want. Since I go there on the weekdays to workout it's convenient to rehearse there too.

    Same problem here. I try to practice in my room, but I have only like 1m² free space. I don't have a big mirror but I can use my window when it's dark outside. However a few months ago suddenly 3 guys walked besides my room and they were like and I was like , since than I'm more careful. I also don't like to practice when people are watching and my boyfriend is at home a lot now. I like that but it's not good for practice

    I have a 7 ft square 'home studio' mirrored room in my house. It's not a huge 'stage' but it suffices nicely! I installed a flat screen TV, VCR/DVD & stereo so I can workout, rehearse and give private classes!

    I practice in my living room when I'm working on my own choreography, but most of the time I head out to the school where there are mirrors and I can work on spatial awareness.

    I usually practise in my room too, only I dont have much space there. Cane practise doesn't work out very nicely. I do have enough space to practise without props (except with zills) and still are able to move around a bit. Dancing in front of my mirror poses a problem since it's so small, I usually practise without.

    When I moved to my new flat, I decided to have as little furniture as possible, without realising at that moment how handy it would be when it comes to dancing Plus, the previous inhabitants left a floor-to-ceiling mirror into my living room. So, apart from the fact that my cane keeps hitting the ceiling when I twirl it, I am pretty happy with my practice space.

    We can also rent our studio for practice time. It is nice to have that room to yourself every now and then

    I practise in my home, but it's not very big.

    I might rent out this community center for two hours or so on Saturday or something cause it's only £8 an hour.

    In my bedroom. It is kind of small, so traveling steps and such are pretty much out of the question. I don't like doing traveling steps very much, and prefer to keep them to a minimum anyway, although I know it's something I really should work on. I do wish I had more room for cane practice, though. No mirrors there, either, but I actually kind of prefer it that way.
