Where has my inspiration gone?
I've traded pure enthusiasm for excuses:
- The music sucks
- There isn't anyone I want to ask to dance
- I'm feeling too shy to ask anyone to dance
- I'm not feeling inspired
- The floor is too crowded
- The floor is too sticky
- I love watching so-and-so dance
I sometimes wonder if I am growing burned out or tired of lindy hop, but then I realize how much I still crave swinging out.
How do I get my inspiration to dance back? Is this something that means I should take a break and step away from Lindy Hop and dancing for awhile? Should I try another style of dance for a while? Or should I just push through and keep swinging out?
This is probably going to end up as a series of blog posts as I examine where this lack of inspiration is coming from and how I personally deal with being an uninspired dancer.
