I had to get out of dance world for a while as it was starting to consume me in every way. Dancing was getting too much. I ended up doing things that I didn't enjoy and that went against my core beliefs. I took a break and took back the control. I found out what I was willing to do and what the cost would be. Today I am very careful to only be involved as much or as little as I want to be involved. I had to find my balance between life and dancing.

yes I am sure everyone comes to a time when they re-evaluate their involvement and commitment ... my teacher says he has seen a trend with social dancers that they tend to be around for about 4-6 years before  they disappear. Has anyone else had this experience.

None here either.  We take a week off now and then, just to avoid the possibility of burnout.

Can't dance too much. Kitchen dance, sit-dance while driving, social dances, practice, practice, practice. Group class. Private lessons. Shuffling in the living room with my husband, about all the dancing he'll do. Now, if I only had a practice partner... Doesn't it count as twice as much dancing if you do it with someone else?

interesting that - clearly you can dance by yourself but if you hanker for partner dancing then you might think you need a partner.

I'm going to start a new topic on this - I think its interesing - in the general dance area called something liike 'the inner partner'..

I used to do that as well. Tongue

I have stopped now. I guess there comes a time where things like that fade out. I do other things now and I am not telling what. Embarrassed
