Fancy Shawl Fitness

Hey guys, I have a question about fancy shawl dancing. What would be the best workouts for getting fit to dance the fancy shawl style? I've been a fancy shawl dancer for 18 years now, kind of on and off. Just last year I haven't been dancing that much, and after having my first child this past winter, I was bigger and not very fit at all so I started dancing jingle instead of fancy for obvious reasons lol. Since then I've slimmed downn and I wanted to start up fancy again :).

Waap,

Nothing beats clearing the front room out and turning on the CD player! You can get a workout with snow outside while dancing to actual songs used in competition. Also with this workout you can improve your moves and stamina!

Lots of cardio and Weights. Dancing as a way of cardio helps but ya need to build up endurance. Best way to do that is running. Stair's also help out with your calves. Sorry not a big fitness guru but I know what helps me stay in shape. Good luck :D
