Hi there!
Well, just thought I'd share with you my OTHER hobby (aside from horse riding, of course!) - dancing!
I was wondering if there's anyone else out there that have the dancing bug and would LOVE it if you'll share your stories/photos/videos etc.

I've been dancing for almost two years now, in three categories - Modern, Contemporary and Hip Hop (just for fun!).
Here's a video of our last rehearsal before my first ever dance concert (2008 concert). I've moved up to the advanced classes now, but these were a good bunch of girls.


Aaaand a little photo of us before the concert (I'm third from the right! :lol:) - don't mind the costumes! It was contemporary, so they're always gonna be a classic! Hahahah There's also photos of me in a LILAC leotard, but as IF they're coming out! I'll take them to the grave! :oops: :D

Hope all those dancer's out there (you know who you are! :wink:) could show themselves and share with me!

I used to do ballet, jazz and contemporary but I stopped last year. I miss it a bit, but I've just got too much on my plate with horses. I'll have to track down the video of my contemporary solo, I loved that dance. I did it to 'Waiting on The World to Change' by John Mayer.
Ha, I've danced in some funny costumes. I've been in a flight attendant one, a sparkly blue leotard, a mouse one.
I think I will take up dancing again when I get the time.

I love dancing. :)
At the moment I can't afford any lessons but I danced Hip Hop and have been dancing since I was 5. I quit last year. I really want to have lessons again :'(
I would love to learn how to dance contemporary, but I'm super unflexable.

Here's a video of my last show. It went horribly xD 2 groups were put together so there were way too many of us on stage and I was extremely stiff and my back hurt, so I didn't do my best at all! lol...
(the quality is crap and my mom isn't very good at filming. haha)



And some pics form before and after the show:







(I liked my hair xD )

I did ballet when I was a little girl like 5 or so but the tutu scared me and the fabric gave me a rash, the hairspray for performances made my eyes swell shut and I was just very unhappy and I was ridiculed because I couldn't do the splits. Then I took jazz which was fun until the teacher got preggers and canceled all classes. Skip up to the early teens I took swing, modern dance, ballroom and a little contemporary. And now I'm a pole dance fitness instructor. I like this one the best, I've always been big on climbing things and hanging upside down. My friends say I'm a monkey.

its very fun, LOTS of moves but they arent hard to remember. u have to be precise tho and point your toes a certain way, and ya, im sure just like all other sorts of dancing. and there is certain regions in ukraine such as the Pultava region, Transcarpathian, Hutzel(hoot- zul) and many others. each region has their own moves and each dance u do, is from one of the many regions. and they each have they're own costumes and such. its very fun, i miss it actually and am considering rejoining again

Oh! I heard about Zumba! It was on one of those late night ads or something. Is it good? Do you go to classes or do you have the home video set?

I go to class twice a week. It is a real workout, we work our core, quads arms, shoulders and, glutes in an hour and :lol: I hate to excersize. But, if I don't get my "Zumba" time......I am all out of sorts for days:twisted:. I am sure that there are classes near you go to www.zumba.com and search for one. I am toying with the idea of becoming an instructor myself.

I know! I'm having a nervous breakdown not being able to exercise, because of my injured knee! I'm a fairly energetic person, I was doing netball on mondays, dancing on tuesdays and thursdays and horseriding all week end!! Now, I sit on an exercise bike at home and SLOWLY cycle around, stretching my leg muscles. ugh. I can't wait till I'm healthy enough to be able to get back into it!!
