I have a myspace, but I don't use it much. I can't remember if it is kellzie or kellzzie. Sometimes the one z name is taken and I have to go with the 2 z version. Feel free to look for me. I can't myspace at work so I will try and remember to try and look you up at home later. I do like my background on myspace I must say. It is a unicorn and I just love it!!!!

umm, can I have my own House to dance in??? Pweez?? If only to get away from Tween tantrums & get some "Me, time??"

I just put up a new Myspace if anyone wants to join me there. My name is H2J. Got the name from a pair of Jeans.

Have to admit. I am terrible at Myspace.

Hey, Amanda! Steve has actually corrected my Technique while Dancing. He is a bit compulsive. Maybe, he can be my Teacher. I am sure he would charge alot though ;)emoticon

When all is said & done...have fun!

Thanks :) BIG GRIN. lol

Most of my dancing for YEARS was between the coffee table and the tv in the living room. I was soooo excited to get a house where I could actually have a room of my own!

At home, I dance either in my living room or in my dining room (w/furniture moved as needed). In the dining room, I use my laptop as my stereo -- hubby converted most of the songs from class to mp3 files. In the living room, I use the DVD player to play CDs & have a mirror in the entry way so I can see myself (as long as I don't move too far to the side.

For my class, we students have started renting a room in a local studio one evening a week for practice, especially when we have a recital or show coming up. It's great to practice as a group, even if only half of us are there.

My neighbor just gave me a really big mirror he took down from his bathroom remodel. It's sitting in my garage for now. I may bring it in for dance practice. Or maybe I'll just move the cars & dance in the garage occasionally.

I dance in my "dining" area. where I can see myself in my sliding glass door after dark if I desperately need to see myself. Otherwise I dance wherever. I've been lax on dancing lately... been busy!

Currently, I just dance/exercise in my living room. It is large enough as long as I don't have to move around too much. In a few months I plan on converting another room and am collecting ideas for it now.

I love the net idea for the swiss ball. Mine is always in the way regardless of where I put it. I will jot that down to remember.

My dance space is a tiny area of my very messy living room (small apartment with very little storage). I have a large mirror that should be hanging on a wall, but it leans against it on a storage bin. All my belly dance stuff is scattered around my rolling storage drawers that overflow with belly dance stuff and belly dance fabric.
I just bought four yards of nude spandex-like fabric...it's not sheer. One of these days it's going to be transformed into a beledi dress with gold leaves and beads placed in strategic areas:D But...I need a better sewing machine since mine is dying and has started hating stretch fabric (actually, it didn't like satin either).

*bounce!*

My dance space is my kitchen. I have an island with a breakfast bar, so that became our table. I moved everything out of the dining area and have lined the long wall with door mirrors and put up my pictures, props, etc. The table was shoved between the wall and the island to sort of cut off the 2 different areas. I live in a manufactured home so all the ceilings are low. My father traded out the light fixtures to give me a little more room (nothing like a chandelier over your sink).

My dance space will really accommodate only 1 person. I am hoping to get a TV/DVD combo soon for my training DVDs as the computer was not working as well as I had hoped (too slow to keep the workout going continuously). The only thing that is rendering my dance space useless is that I have been using the table for my sewing, so there is sewing stuff all over my dance space. I do have a craft room for the sewing, but not really the room to move around (got to work on that). If I can have a Koala Cabinet or 2, I think I could talk myself into cleaning up the craft room so I would sew in there.

Ultimately, I want to have my own studio, but leases are very high in the Shreveport, LA area -- especially if I don't know if I will have any income from the studio (I have never taught).

Ok, I posted photos of my dance space (cleverly angled to hide the mess) in my gallery.

It's really sort of a 1/4 basement, and hubby hung doors over the furnace and laundry area, so when the doors are shut, it looks just like a tiny little studio. :) I want bigger mirrors, but I want a lot of things.

We have really low ceilings, which sucks, but I've learned to get used to them. No veil work in THIS studio. LOL.

One wall is nothing but stacked up videotapes and dvds (and my ridiculously large collection of exercise videos.) So I didn't show that. It's also the motivation wall, though -- where I've hung pictures and printouts of my favorite emails from my mentors and fave dancers.

Under the stairs is hollow, so hubby and f-in-law made a storage space there. The door opens and you have 3 big deep shelves set about a foot back from the door. So there's room for my weight set, my step bench, extra swords, papers and notebooks, shoes, whatever. And hubby had the great idea to get a plastic hanging sweater holder to hang in there to store hip scarves in. How clever!

I have a tv, dvd, vcr, and cd player down there in the corner, so I can work with videos when I want. The big brown pouf sitting on the exercise bike is my "chair" when I'm just watching videos. That, or the Swiss ball, which hubby hung in a net off the ceiling over the TV. We have a punching bag in the corner, too.

Overall I think it's a pretty efficient use of little space. (About the ONLY efficient use of space in our house!) I can even fit another person down there with me, as long as we don't get TOO carried away.

The only thing I don't have room for is a barbell set, unless I stood it up in the corner of the closet. I kinda want a barbell now :)

So who else has a cool space? I want to post a pic of my friend's dining room that she converted into a dance space. It's AWESOME!
