    Nah, I'm not depressed. I'm always too chirpy and happy. I don't think I've lost interest in the dance, cause I think about dancing everyday. I think what my problem is I want to be the best I can be. I'm so determined to go back to uni looking fab that I've kinda put everything on a hold. I dunno. Reckon what I've been watching too much TV with all the fit unbertoned celebs, lol.

    Part of me is probably lazy too. Lately if I know I can do a move, then I just won't work on it. Yup laziness is what I reckon,

    Dear Sara,
    Honey, if your avatar is a photo of you, I don't think you have a single thing to worry about when it comes to looking fab. You are absolutely gorgeous!!

    Thanks! I guess we never think of ourselves as gorgeous. Or at least I don't cause I spend too much time looking at my flaws.

    If you are feeling more focused on working out at the moment (though it sure doesn't look like you need to!) then why not introduce some high energy dance as part of your workout routine? Dancing to drum solos or other high energy music would both provide some aerobic exercise and help keep your practice up.

    Alternatively have you been practicing the same old things for too long and are now finding it a bit boring? If so, maybe just creating a challenging new practice routine, getting hold of some good DVDs to practice to or taking a class or workshop with a new teacher, would help provide a bit of variation and make it feel less of the "same old same old"?

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for all the tips and support. I've decided to go to JOY, and have been wanting to practise more now that I haven't been. Which is all good. Plus watching dancers on you tube has helped too.

    I think a large part of it could be my environment. Not very productive one, lol. Oh well. Have to find somewhere nice.

    glad i found this thread.
    recently i have been battling the same feelings of disenchantment..or lack of motivation.
    maybe because i just don't have the space to practice right now.

    Hey!

    I've been finding my surroundings a really big hinderence. I'm always distracted, I don't get any time alone, and the space I have is limited to a bedroom with no space and since all three pets literally follow me everywhere, it get's a bit stressy lol. When I go back to Uni though I'll hopefully have more space. I'm going to try and create a nice space to practise in and make it exciting to be in, lol.

    Perhaps that should be a task! We should all (if we dunt already have one) tr and make a nice space to practise in and post pics ^__^

    Great idea! I have plans for a practise space (cunningly disguised as plans for a spare room/study that just happens to have a wall of mirrored wardrobes ). It hasn't amounted to much yet though. I'm good at plans, rubbish at getting on with them.

    Dear Gang,
    My office and my dance space and my costume space are all in the same postage stamp sized room. I have a computer desk, 2 floor to ceiling book shelves, a smaller computer desk that holds office supplies and has some of my CDs in shelves on top of it, 2 five foot mirrors on one wall, a 5 foot high file cabinet with my music system on it, another cupboard with old National Geographics from 1921 to about 2 years ago in it, another smaller cabinet with .... I can't remember what... in it, this drawer thing that used to be my grandmother's end table about 3 1/2 feet long a clothing rack and about 10 storage bins full or costumes that will not fit in the closet. I have to move stuff out of the way to practice!! I have learned how to practice on a dime if necessary and adjust for stage space as it happens. Right now it looks like the wreck of the Hesperus in here.
    Regards,
    A'isha
