My problem is, altho I have good hand speed / technique, I'm very heavy on my feet.
Anyone have any advice on improving this?

Have you tried simply trying to focusing on being lighter on your feet? I'm serious. Next time you spar in class don't worry about winning on losing, just focus on your footwork. Over do it. Jump in and out of range, run from you opponent, try to get behind him to literally kick his ass, without caring how much your'e actually hitting him or getting hit. That's what training is for.
Once you get a feel for it you can cut it back to a realistic level.

Could be something as simple as having your weight too far back (towards your heels).
A little bend in the knees goes a long way as well.

Bend your knees, lower your waist, rest on the balls of your feet and not your heels. If you are already extended then you have to bend before you can move. Be bent already.

A lot of your quickness on your feet is determined by your stance and your balance. Being on the balls of your feet (as already stated) is the best policy and having a 50/50 stance about shoulder wide provides good stability and reasonable mobility.

you ninja fags just got owned in a bad way. this thread should go to the classics and mega thread forum due to the sheer size of taebo_master and gajusceaser's penis. (with which they just smacked across these ninja's faces)

Quickest feet I ever saw was this guy who was a really good cha-cha dancer. I swear to god. Told me the way he did it was to shift your weight as forward as you can without your heels leaving the ground. He claimed it kept your balance centered enough to be stable but up enough to be mobile. Do you guys think he was just full of ****, or would this work?

I wouldn't be surprised if he was telling the truth. We had a lady who trained with us for a while who did ballroom dancing for 25 years, and she put be in what seemed to me the most unbalanced foot positions etc, and still maintain perfect balance!

That reminds me, didn't Bruce Lee compete in cha-cha for a while?

Do you run sprints at all? If you do, try running sprints on sand. You develop really fast feet because you learn to skim over the sand, instead of sinking in deep. Sprinters use this exercise a lot, not sure how useful it would be for martial arts.
