How To Dance With a Busy Schedule – 5 Tips

Gabriela Novellino

It may seem impossible to squeeze in a dance class when your schedule is packed, but with a little determination, anything is achievable! Here are some tips to help you make room for an iLindy class when you’re pressed for time:

1. Plan ahead

Pre-select the iLindy classes you wish to take, save them to your favorites, and slot them into your desired dance days in your calendar. By having a visual plan, you’ll be more likely to stick to your dance goals. This proactive approach ensures that your dance time becomes a non-negotiable part of your daily or weekly routine. Additionally, consider pairing your dance sessions with other activities you already have planned, such as workout sessions or study breaks, to maximize your time management and efficiency. 

2. Opt for shorter classes

iLindy offers a diverse selection of classes, with a vast variety of classes under 30 minutes! If your daily agenda leaves you with only brief windows of free time, these shorter classes can be a lifesaver. Whether you have 15 minutes or just a quick 5-minute break, there’s a class tailored to your schedule. These shorter classes are not only time-efficient but also allow you to focus on specific skills or styles without feeling overwhelmed by a full-length class. 

3. Learn section by section

No need to tackle an entire class when you’re short on time! Choose a class you’re interested in and break it down into manageable sections that fit your schedule. This method enables you to progress at your own pace and absorb the material effectively, ensuring that even small pockets of time can contribute to your dance improvement. Moreover, by breaking down classes into smaller sections, you can mix and match different styles and techniques to keep your dance experience dynamic and exciting.

4. Snatch a dance break

During those precious 5-10 minute breaks in your daily routine, sneak in a quick class! We offer a variety of classes that last less than 10 minutes. You can use the duration filter on our menu to easily locate them. These short bursts of dance can serve as energizing interludes throughout your day, helping you stay active and engaged. Incorporating these micro-sessions into your routine not only boosts your dance skills but also provides a welcome mental and physical break from your busy schedule.

5. Use your iLindy Planner to track your dance goals

Maximize your dance journey by using the iLindy Planner. Set clear goals and break them into achievable steps. Assign specific times for practice sessions within your planner. As you accomplish milestones, check them off for a motivating sense of progress. This tool makes it easier to stay on track even during a hectic schedule. Let your iLindy Planner be your dance partner in achieving your goals! All 6-months and annual subscriptions come with our exclusive iLindy Dance Planner for Free.

Remember, incorporating a dance class into a tight schedule requires some effort and creative thinking, but it’s entirely feasible. With these tips, you can satisfy your dance cravings even when your agenda is overflowing. By making dance a flexible and integral part of your daily routine, you’ll not only improve your skills but also find joy and stress relief in the midst of your busy life. So, embrace the rhythm, and dance your way through your packed schedule!
