|In January, starting the resolution...|
But, now that it is coming to the end of the year, we begin to think about the past 12 months - what we've achieved, what we haven't done, what has changed, what has stayed the same - so this feels like the perfect time to bring this 'feature' to a close (if you like...)
So, how has this dancing resolution played out over 2011? Well, as I mentioned above, I have continued dancing for the WHOLE year and it all started with the 'Strictly Diary'. For Christmas, I received the 'Strictly Come Dancing: Strictly Fit, Dance Fit' fitness DVD and regularly carried out the dance workouts. It was a lot of fun and, after a few attempts, I really felt myself getting a grasp of the moves and improving - I'm starting to wonder why I didn't carry this on? Probably because the dances do become a bit repetitive; the DVD could benefit from a few more routines in my opinion...
But, come February, I had found another dance hobby to keep me occupied and fit - Zumba! Myself and a couple of friends began classes on a Wednesday and LOVED it! We all had a great laugh whilst getting fit - what could be better?! The moves are great fun to do (especially on a dancefloor on a Saturday night...) and you REALLY work hard, to the point where we had stitches after 20 minutes, and I still attend the same class to this day - a whole 10 months later!
Just like many other fans of this fitness craze, I rushed out to buy the Zumba game for the Wii - admittedly, I only went on this game a handful of times, and it now sits on my bookshelf - but it is there for when I need it! I am also the owner 'Just Dance 2' which again has a place on a shelf, so I think it is safe to say this part of the resolution is not my strongest...

So, that's it for this year's 2011 Dance Diary (it doesn't feel right saying that!), but, I can say, that this hobby will definitely be continuing in 2012!
