For social dancers,stamina doesn't make a whole lot of difference.  If you're tired, you sit one out.

But,for competitive dancers, stamina or lack thereof can make the difference between making it through the final round looking and feeling fresh or wilting like yesterday's flowers.

So.  Competitive dancers, what kinds of things do you incorporate into your training program to build stamina?  Do you run rounds?  Do you cross train?Or does stamina automatically come along for the ride, when you do your other dance training?

we use social dance as our stamina training. as we know most of the NV  dancers and the songs they play re for three minutes, we maintain shape and styling for that duration, where as on the comp floor  most of the time it is a1.20 and max 2.00.

We always have a cardiac bracket which is VW, tango and quickstep one after the other for three minutes that will do it and we do that twice during the evening. Trying to dance very dance with quality is the best stamina training you can have.

Prayer is good, but, as a GF/pastor always says, you have to give God something to bless. Something ...such as endurance training?  Roll Eyes   Wink
