4 Tips to Balance Work and Dance
Yes, most of us love dancing, but we are busy individuals. We are working, studying, taking care of family, and so much more!
So how do we pursue what we love?
It's not easy, but it's also not impossible. We just need to find the balance and fill our mind with positive thoughts. Instead of saying "I have so much to do," we should always be saying "I can do it!"
This is definitely easier said than done, but here are a few tips to help you balance your daily duties with your dancing hobby.
The first step is to plan ahead. We need to set some time aside to map out how our regular week works. See which days you can spare a few hours and make that your window for your dance practice.
2. Do Your Research
Google can be your best friend when it comes to searching for anything, so use it to find classes local to you. This will maximize your time in the dance studio instead of spending it on the road to practices.
3. Start Small
While it would be amazing to learn all the dance styles in the world, it's not very smart to take on everything at once. Pick one to two classes that fit in your schedule before you spread yourself too thin and begin to feel burned out.
4. Alternative Options
Sometimes going to a physical class is not an option. While online classes and tutorials can be found, it is not the same as learning in a studio setting with an instructor to help you. If this is your only option to get moving, it's worth looking into.
Another option is looking for a private instructor. This can get pricey, but if you are looking for individual attention in your practices, this could be the route for you.
When you plan your time and do your research, you will be able to get started on your dancing journey in no time. It's a balancing act, but as they say, "practice makes perfect." Soon, you will get used to your new weekly routine with your regular practices mixed in and you will feel more fulfilled getting some dancing hours in each week.
If you are looking for more help, talk to the studio that you have finalized and a friendly studio manager will surely help you find options that work for you! In the end, if you love doing something, you will figure out a way to make that something work!
