hip bursitis

I seem to be having hip bursitis. I had it once before and eventually got rid of it with icing it.  This time it seemed to be getting better, but I think I aggravated it with lower body workouts.  A bit of research suggests laying off most exercise, and stretching the hips. I'm not big on laying off the exercise and I can't live without dancing(which gives me hip pain these days.) Any suggestions on what would be appropriate  do's and don'ts? I just got my Squeeze {Lower Body Challenge}5610^, and am afraid to try it now. Also got a new cardio dvd, and I want to try that too. I will wait a bit on that.
Thanks ,

    I was diagnosed with hip bursitis a few months ago.  I went to almost all low-impact workouts.  I will occasionally throw in a higher-impact move, but I'm careful how much I do of that and only do it when my hip isn't acting up.  For the most part, I've been pain-free.  I do a lot of walking outdoors including lots of hills.  I actually found that doing lower body workouts helped the condition - especially floor workouts that included series where you're stretching the leg/hip as you're working it (such as in the Original Buns of Steel , the "L" series of Squeeze, or Winsor Pilates Buns & Thighs, for example).  I also have to make sure that I stretch my hip enough.
