Back in the saddle!
Haven’t danced, or haven’t danced as much as you wished because of the pandemic, and are looking for ways to ease yourself back in, in a way that is also kind to your needs and body? I’ve got two possible options for you:
- Sofia, from Tessera and the former FCBD troupe, is running a September Step Up your Stamina challenge. It’s running on her Social Media platforms, on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/sofiadances/and YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEWRmxOuoqTcFz053AOgjnA
She’s done a wonderful job of organising this month long practice as SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely, more on that at a later date) while offering dancers of all levels potential points for improvement
- Sahira is running a Zill Challenge, with a support group on Facebook, and daily videos in your inbox. It’s also only just started, and you can take part by singing into the group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/zillicious
Again, SMART goals set up in a progressive fashion, and with accountability within the group if desired
If you’re still not certain about restarting, or need an even slower pace, remember you can download the guides and do them at your own pace. I am only going to attempt Sofia’s during September as I also have other dancing going on, and one of *my* objectives is to not self-sabotage by taking on too much. I’m still downloading all the videos from Sahira and will attempt them during October. I’ve also just become aware that registration for Sahira’s has closed on her website, but not sure the status on the Facebook group.
