    Having hardwood floors in the house helps with that. Or else I can go to the gym and use their aerobics room when it is available. Since I would have gym membership anyway whether I dance or not, I might as well use it for more things than just cardio & weights.

    So what was your result for the stats project?
    Having skimmed through the posts, I could not find a final report, but I found lots of responses that I am glad I didn't have to analyse.
  4. average around 10 but almost never exceed 15.

    at the moment we dance 4 days a week at least one and half hours per day... two days for three hours.. I think that works out to be 12 :)

    2 hrs now, used to be 4 but we had to drop that class because it changed times and we couldn't get to the other one. That goes up to 7 or 8 if there is a ball or a comp on.

    But in the end it is still quality not can practice as l much as you like but as long as you don't get good instruction you would just be reinforcing bad habits.

    ditto, my bank balanace is never going to be the same again after this month :shock: asked for extra private lessons tonight.... I didn't ask for a quote... :D

    Anywho I generally only practice what I know I can do properly, sometimes I'll give new steps a go to try and master them, then tidy up in the studio with the teacher :)

    Right, and practicing it the correct way. I've seen some students practice over and over and over, but it just becomes mechanical. It's nice to know good technique, but once you dance with a partner it needs to flow together, so the practicing doesn't always help when you can't dance yourself first. I guess it is up to the individual and how they perceive their dancing.

    Per week?
    I danced 10 minutes last month I think. Now if you include the classes then maybe 3h a week.
