This is definitely not an end. I'm in transition - changing jobs, cities, partners, coaches...changing my entire life, basically. As far as  maintaining, I guess I'm not worried. In some ways, I'm starting over. I see this break as inevitable, so I'm going to make the most of it. But the strive toward success in dancing has not stopped, it's just changed. I don't think it will ever stop, to be honest. It has become so integrated into my life.

Besides, I hear that people do well after breaks. Here's my chance to test this theory Smiley.

I see - sort of a life reboot! Smiley  A good idea every now and then as it helps you figure out that which is really important important, OK and disposable....

No breaks until December and then will have a break for 6 weeks, will try to work on other forms of fitness during this time and study up for my coaching accreditation

Of course there has to be a balance between the benefits of taking a break and the hazzards of forgetting what you already know Smiley

Agree.  In cases of unplanned / forced breaks, I think there can be a fair amount of stress, depending on the reason for the break though.

Yes.  Quite.

I think the question is not whether there should be breaks, but how long they should be.   Too long and, as ee pointed out,they can become the end, rather than just a hiatus.

I was treading water - well actually I was still improving even with only 1.5hrs lessons/dancing per week.  but I can't see how to fit even that in any more.  no job no anything Tongue

I'm sorry to hear that. It's terrible when dance is such a big part of your life and you have to let it go, even if temporarily.

I hope you find a good solution for you.  *sigh*

Perhaps planning the break and a time frame for a return at the same time so that the break doesn't drag on and become a "dance divorce?"
