Is it common to go through what may feel like a regress (as in opposite to progress) in your ballroom dancing? I've been taking more lessons, exercising more (yoga and general gym classes), yet I feel I am dancing worse than 6 months ago. I specifically feel lack of balance recently and overall feel less confident. I am not injured, so it's not that. Honestly, I think I am getting old and it frustrates me a lot. Any suggestions how to get through this phase gracefully? Is it really a phase, or just natural regression due to my age (50+)? Maybe I need to slow down? Try harder? How to tell the difference? I don't want to stop dancing, but how do I progress when my body wants to slow down?
