When the rest of my life is following its routine, I easily put in at least 30 minutes of practice every business day, and 1.5-2 hours on weekends (not counting lessons). It is just so simple - drop off the kid at school and go to the gym to practice there for 30 minutes until their aerobics classes start. And then I can go and start my daily work. But when that schedule falls apart, I find it hard to regroup and still get my dance practice in. For example, we had christmas break. During the break, on the days when I did not have lessons, I was unable to get my usual amount of practicing. I had to buy food, cook holiday meals, there was no reason to get up so early, and the bottom line is that by the time I actually had time to do anything for myself, it was kinda late to do anything.

yes life can get in the way. but in twenties minutes you can do small things that make changes...we are all very busy now and have to use our time effectively. even if it is reading an inspiring book

So far, thinking about dancing all day long. Watched youtube for almost 1 hour.
Did Hula Hoop for 20minutes(20minutes more before hit the bed). Danced chacha and rumba for 20 minutes.

Yes! I think it counts. If you are not a dancer and don't care that much, why do you heck want to watch other people dancing on youtube? Roll Eyes
There are plenty of funny stuff on youtube and you type 'dancesport', 'standard', 'new vogue', 'latin dance', 'blackpool dance festival', etc.,etc.,etc.

Well, we deserve to take the credit.  Cheesy

of course it does, as long as you learn something from it. Cool

I watched a video of two previous dance lessons with our male standard teacher. Just like learning it all over again.
