Walking is also a great stamina builder and great for the overall mental well being by getting out into the fresh air and sunshine.  I don't mean a light saunter around the block... Go find somewhere with some rise and fall tot the terrain and plot out a route.  Walk a well articulated foxtrot walk around the course to a light, faster social foxtrot and you gain from it.   It's not all about the dance, but it is... Bestir you can take your dog along too!  They love a brisk workout!

"If you can walk, you can dance" - Zimbabwean Proverb.

I think the problem is, most people try to learn to dance before they learn, or rather, re-learn how to walk.

When a new student phones in asking about lessons the beginner is very hesitant.  I always ask... Can you walk forward?  Can you walk backwards?  Can you take a step to the side?  Can you count to 8?  If all of the answers are yes, then you can dance... Now I teach you to walk the floor in time to the music...

I say that all the time why is it that so many men are hesitant to try?

I have absolutely no idea.  They just don't realize how attractive a man who can dance to a lady...

I know and what is sad the  impression from their men friends seems more powerful :-/ yet in years gone by it was the done thing. I see a increase in the number of men wanting to to Salsa etc. I think they think Ballroom is too stuffy?

If Salsa gets them in the door then maybe the realization that women are attracted to men who dance will keep the coming back and learn more dances. And a few socials under his belt, with ladies asking him to dance does wonders for the male ego.   Smiley

I would say the best way to develop stamina for dancing is to dance. Either dance socially or do rounds in a practice setting.

yes I agree and we also always start out lessons doing five in a row so our coach can see how we cope to do a final  Smiley
