Do You Want to Practice, But Never Find the Time?

Listen to this FREE training on how to build a sustainable dance practice.


Sustainable practice for life

In 2014, I completely turned around my dance practice.

I used to be a “feast or famine” practicer, doing a big practice one day, and then nothing for days – or weeks!

But now I consistently practice every morning.

(And I am NOT a morning person.)

I didn’t discover some magic source of willpower

In fact, willpower had almost nothing to do with it.

I didn’t gain extra hours in the day

I had a full-time dance business and a full time day job when I did my turn-around.
(I’m now part-time at my day job, and loving it, but that happened later.)

Nadira's Graduation

I don’t have a literal engineer hat.
Unless you count the mortarboard…

Instead, I got smart about how I practiced

You know that phrase “work smarter, not harder”?

It’s bunk.

Practice takes work. There’s no getting around that.

But there are dozens of things that make that work less likely to happen.

So I put on my engineer hat.

I started observing and optimizing.

I noticed what took time away from practice.

I noticed what made me feel like not practicing.

I tweaked little things, like what I wear to bed.

I tweaked big things, like how I see the role of dance in my life.

I learned to work smarter so that I could work harder.

Now you can do it too

Your life is different from mine, so your obstacles and tweaks will be different.

But the same process can get you there.

And I can help.

The 3 Obstacles to Steady Dance Practice

You may remember Julie Eason, founder of The Belly Dance Business Academy from her appearances on The Belly Dance Geek Clubhouse.  

Well this time, she’s turning the tables and interviewing me!


When I told her about how I transformed my own practice, she said we had to share this.  

In this FREE teleclass, you’ll learn:
  • The 3 mistakes that make it hard to practice reliably (and how to overcome them)
  • Why lack of willpower is not the problem
  • How putting dance lower on your priorities list can help you practice more
  • How hilariously low standards lead to high-quality practice
  • 5 trivial tweaks that keep me on track


I’ll also tell you how you can get the support you need to establish your own practice habit in 2015.

The Details:

The live event was held on January 8th, 2015. You missed the call, but it’s not too late! The event was recorded, so you can listen now.

Your information will never be shared, and you can remove yourself at any time.
