Now that you’ve been doing your exercises from my Falling Down blog, you’re ready to start dancing. Laugh your way through it.
I went to a tap dance show with a friend. Talk about fun childhood memories.
The lobby had been set up with a wooden floor 10 ft x 10 ft. and there were two boxes of tap shoes. Everyone waiting in the lobby could try tap dancing with a little lesson. It was tons of fun. I was out there shuffle-shuffle-tap shuffle-shuffle-tap. I don’t seem to have a light touch though. Good dancers seem to hang in the air like puppets with only their legs moving. My legs were like the cartoon elephant in a tutu.
The show was great fun. And the best part was the pre-show embarrassing myself while I laughed and danced. Made me feel like doing more of the things I did so freely when I was younger. Forget pogo-sticks or roller skating. Maybe riding a bicycle??
Van Cliburn was my hero growing up; I wanted to be a ‘concert pianist.’ Had I ever seen Gregory Hines tap dance, I would have changed ‘my career ‘ choice.
Best tap dancer ever: Gregory Hines (1946-2003)
