    you KNOW your addicted to dance WHEN: ^_^
    1- you own more pointe/ballet shoes than you do other kinds of shoes
    2- you use your boyfriend for a bar in front of the biggest mirror in your house so you can be sure your perfect
    3- you wear out dance shoes faster than you can buy them
    4- your an art major....and your portfolio's concentration is ballet
    5- you give up all your hours of spare time to dance in your house, or anywhere you can find space
    6- you move into the smallest room in your house and turn the largest one into a dance studio
    7- you post the reasons you know your addicted on this forum
    8- you talk to yourself about what you need to fix while dancing alone
    9- you spend more hours a week at the dance studio getting lessons than you do sleeping
    10- every pieve of jewelry you own is ballet related

    ^_^ these are why im addicted!

    No stitches or staples. The doctor had said that I could do physical activity as I was able. Turned out I did feel better and was able to dance. Still, I should have followed your advice and rested as I did get the flu several days later.

    Wow, that's good!

    ... when you start dreaming of having a home with a room big enough for dancing ... maybe even big enough to have friends over for dancing!

    :D This is nice.

    Instead of dreaming, learn salsa! :D I had a salsa party in my house, and we all danced in my kitchen. Since salsa is danced on the spot (either in a circle or slot), you don't need a huge space. (I played some tango too -- space wasn't a problem since there was only one leader there who could dance tango anyway.)

    This makes me LOL! Just since I have been allowing thoughts of competition to waft thru my noggin, I've seen my dining area in a whole new light - it would be a good place to practice. I have a nice flat, clean floor and I even have a heeeyoooouge mirror on one wall, almost floor to ceiling, and about 4 feet wide. Would that not be just great for a practice space with the table pushed out of the way?

    :lol: :roll:

    No -- just get RID of the table. My, my, where are your priorities? :shock: ;)

    Exactly -- just use another room (with an unsuitable floor) for eating :lol:

    You know you're addicted to dancing when you're stretching your arches under the desk at school.

    I'll learn Salsa and still continue to dream! :) And Tango can work in so many spots! Just like Rumba and Cha-Cha! I've even done some Foxtrot in a friends living room after we moved the big coffee table! Yet a really big room would be so cool to have for things like the romance of a big Waltz with your closest partner. Or to invite friends over for an evening of dance where all types can be featured. Yet I'd be willing to feature a special Salsa night with or without a big space. Particularly for you, like say on your birthday! ;)

    And how about a birthday wish for me ... a night of nothing but tango! :)

    Or take your SO out for dinner! Then both of you can come back for dancing at home, with showers available, and ... well, other nice romantic activitees which I will leave to everyone's imagination. :wink: :lol:

    Naughty! Naughty! Naughty DP! You know you are addicted to adncing when you dance non-stop. When you ask a random stranger and when she says no you simply say your loss with a laught and ask her neighbour. :)

    Ah.... unfortunately I'm married to a *gasp* non-dancer. He lacks the ability to hear rhythm and I have yet to convince him that perhaps that isn't insurmountable. *sigh* It would be so perfect with the showers and... all that. :wink: *eyebrows raised*

    Or take your SO out to a place where you can have dinner AND dance :D. Then come back for more dancing (and a shower :lol:) -- other romantic activities optional (after all that dancing you may not be inclined to do anything other than sleep) :lol:, but breakfast in bed the following morning would be nice :wink:

    ** Oops I think I'm encouraging DP again... :oops: **

    That sounds like me... (except the random stranger is usually a *he* -- but not always!)

    A girl asked me the other night how I could always get so many dances despite the permanent shortage of men -- I told her I just went and grabbed guys and passed all my stalking tips on to her :lol:
