glass_icarus: (partners)
Went to a dance social last night for the first time in... about 2 months? It was a great party and I spent a long time dancing with practice-partner S (we've been on practice-hiatus for a few months, but we tentatively agreed to start again :D), as well as a couple of people visiting from elsewhere in Quebec. I've missed my zoukers a lot, but damn, I need to get back in shape. Time to see if I can get into the habit of doing pilates workouts at home a couple times a week.

A few of you have asked me to talk about dance and I think it might be a bit much to try to combine all of those posts into one. [personal profile] jhameia's question about muscle development feels apropos today, since I woke up sore in my everything. Honestly, muscles are a thing that I never particularly cared about- I'm not the biggest exercise junkie, and I started dancing because it was fun and not because I wanted to have great abs or whatever- but the more I learned, the more I started to realize how valuable the muscle training aspect is, even if I'm still not particularly good at it outside of dance contexts.

Er, looking at this, my response might miss the mark on things you wanted to know, but if you have further questions feel free to ask! :P

[personal profile] littlebutfierce asked for something about how I got started in dance, maybe things I've learned along the way or how my relationship to it has changed or what I get out of it. Obviously this is a lot of topics smashed into one, but I will do my best! xD For those of you who don't feel like reading a lot of dance-babble, the short form of what I get out of dance can be more or less encapsulated by Daft Punk: if that song doesn't give you an instant hit of the kind of euphoria that I call dance-high, I doubt that anything I have to say could describe it for you.

For those of you who want the long version, here it is: )

I... am going to stop here before I continue to feels-babble everywhere, haha, but if you're curious about anything or want more specifics, feel free to ask!
