Nurses who are dancers........... - Page 2Register Today!
- Oct 19, '07 by danh3190I'm into Irish Ceili dancing primarily (sort of like square dancing with some footwork). Also do Contra, Swing (Jitterbug, Lindy, Balboa), and English Country dancing sometimes. Here in Pittsburgh we're lucky to have a lot of great dancing.
Unfortunately since I'm a student, I've had to cut back on my dancing to once a week at most, both because of time and $$$.
- Oct 28, '07 by sc0628Hey just found this thread and wanted to add. I am not yet a nurse, but a pre-nursing student. I have taught ballet, tap, jazz, dance aerobics, balletone etc. for a few years now. I got burnt out and tired of teaching so I decided to pursue nursing b/c you can actually make money at it and not be stuck at a desk all day from 9-5. I have to be moving. Anyway, I plan on continuing to dance. I would really love to learn swing dancing. Absoutely love Benji Schwimmer and his sister Lacy. They are amazing. Anyway, I have mostly taught dance to kids, so I hope to be able to work with children in nursing as well.
- Oct 29, '07 by marikat534I love hip hop and bellydancing. It makes you feel good about yourself, and boosts my ego!
- Oct 29, '07 by teeituptomI like 2 stepping and square dancing
- Nov 1, '07 by RN4NascarI love to do Hula. I also ride horses and get the horse to "dance" called Dressage. But I sure love to just dance to a great song esp from the 80s!!
- Nov 26, '07 by mmsparkleI just tried an afternoon workshop of Lindy Hop - It was AMAZING!!!
I can't wait to try it again!
- Nov 26, '07 by HelenofOzIrish set dancing-think lancers & quadrilles a la "Pride & Prejudice" on speed, or as one friend describes it-extreme dancing, and my favourite set is the Balleyvourney jig set, then anything from Kerry.Last edit by HelenofOz on Nov 26, '07 : Reason: spelling, again
- Nov 26, '07 by HelenofOzAs for what I else I enjoy, a good waltz, either dancing it, or just watching it. A waltz done well is a joy.
I can be mesmerised by tango dancers and watch them for ages (not competition, I find that too stiff and artificial, but social dancers are very fluid, for want of a better word)
and for good fun & hi-jinks, Morris dancers are great. Anything that involves men with bells on their legs and flowers in their hats trying not to hit each other with sticks in time to music, and beer, has to be good
At Easter I go to the National Folk Festival in Canberra, and am quite happy to spend hours in front of the stage watching all the different types of dancers, though I sort of spoilt it for myself this year as I've joined an Irish set dancing group that performed there, so didn't get to see as much as I'd like, what with practising etc. but what an experience-starting my stage career at nearly 53!
