I'm 15 and about to start yr 10. I have been dance for three years preprofessionally but this year I am beginning the study of dance as a part of gaining my high school certificate (SACE). I dance after school as well as within school hours. I'm also going gym classes for extra exercise and stretching as well as injury prevention. I'm worried if this is too much exercise. I also want to know if this sounds like a good, well balanced schedule for a dancer (I want to be a contemporary or jazz dancer). With this schedule, I can JUST fit in my homework (I have study lessons). This is my schedule: Monday Jazz 3:30pm-4:30pm Tap 4:30pm-5:30pm Hip Hop 5:30pm-6:30pm Exercise total: 3 hours Tuesday SACE Dance Class- Contemporary 12:20pm-1:05pm Yoga/Pilates Class 7:00pm-8:00pm Exercise total: 1 hour 45 minutes Wednesday SACE Dance Class- Contemporary 2:45pm-3:30pm Contemporary 3:45pm-5:00pm Ballet 5:00pm-6:15pm Exercise total: 3 hours and 15 minutes Thursday: SACE Dance Class- Contemporary 10:50am-12:20pm Jazz Class- 5:45pm-9:00pm Exercise total: 4 hours and 45 minutes Friday: SACE Dance Class- Contemporary 8:35am-9:15am Sh'bam Class 5:45pm-6:45pm (similar to Zumba if you don't know. I don't know if its really "dance" but I'll count it anyway) Exercise total: 1 hour and 40 minutes Saturday: Yoga Class 3:00pm-4:00pm Exercise total: 1 hour Sunday: RPM Class (indoor cycling)- 9:30am-10:15am Zumba Class- 10:30am-11:30am Exercise total: 1 hour and 45 minutes So in total I am exercising for just over 17 hours per week. Give me your thoughts on if this is a well balanced schedule and also if it is maintainable.
