I've been scouring the boards for spin advice (thanks africana, spina) and have been tightening my abs, tucking my hips, keeping my back straight and checking my alignment in a mirror. I pulled off three in a row today (outside spin on my right leg, not a triple) and one outside on my left with solid balance, but wasn't able to do any insides. I feel like I'm getting worse, but I'm guessing that's not the case since the most I've done in one session solidly is one. I've heard some say (like on Edie's spins DVD) that you should do a couple in each direction and others who say that they practice for 15 min-half an hour. I personally get dizzy easily and after about 5 min, I wouldn't know balance if it slapped me in the back of the head. My question is, how long do you all practice and how long did it take you until you could pull even one spin of well on the dance floor?
