I am very fortunate that in the last 3 years I started dancing, I have been able to continue my lessons, and attend comps consistently. Inspite of work schedule and commuting to lessons, its worked out so far and I hope it continues. If for some reason, I had to take a break from dance, I don't know how I would survive. I hope no one has to deal with it. Yet all kinds of things- time, finances, jobs, other obligations, in other words, life happens and we may be faced with a choice. How many here have had to give up dance and for how long? Did you go back? How did it feel to go back? How do we find ways to keep dancing?
