I have wanted a goods hydrotherapy tub for a long time...oh, the heaven of those things! I had a friend who bought a very high-end one, with gazillions of jets that hit everywhere from your neck, down your arms, back, legs, hips, calves, and feet while you lay in a lounge. It had two of these sort of facing each other so you could chat with your friend in this giant tub while getting blissed out.

Omg, doesn't that just sound like heaven for dancers? Smiley

certainly does....enything that helps the aches and pains of maturing is great!

I love swimming in cold-ish water. Last summer I swam in an unheated pool in in Jersey and it was perfect, but now I'm in Florida living with fam who enjoy heating their hot-weather pool in the summer... oof.

while we're on the subject... foxtrot, quickstep, waltz, samba, and rumba practice in the pool today. first standard practice in ages. who'd a thunk the pool would work? both the resistance of the water and the resistance of the side of the pool are good for a great many dance-related things.

terrell, my DP ("dear pole") at the gym has competition, i fear. lolz Wink Cool

To keep DP happy, just promise him that he is your only polka partner...

I do believe the Polish dance it (although they didn't invent it).  So your Pole partner is not too far off the mark.  Smiley

From Wikipedia:
Polish word "Polka" (little girl). The name has led to the dance's origin being sometimes mistakenly attributed to Poland.
