Shuffle step, shuffle ball change

“Pretty, girls, pretty!!”

I had another tap dancing class. All us “girls” did a slightly better job of not crashing into the wall and into each other than last time. Our teacher, Diane, seemed genuinely delighted by us, no matter how badly we danced. She is the anti-Simon Cowell. Her enthusiasm knows no bounds.

We need to bottle this woman and ship a supply to wherever there is violence and war. Everyone would lay down arms and smile.

I still love the tapping sound. On a bad day, I put on the shoes and tap until I feel better.

Shut up.

  2. I grew up a dancer, but haven’t taken a class in years. This inspires me to get back into it and have fun with it!

    Tap therapy sounds good. And oh those pretty shoes!

  4. Good for you! We always regret the things we DON’T do in life. I may follow your example and learn to roller-blade. Who cares what people think?!

  5. Boy, could I use her enthusiasm around here, today! If you every find a way to bottle it, let me know 😛

    • I need a secret lab with genius scientists who are hiding from society for legal – yet morally respectable – reasons. Then I could say, “I’ll put the girls in the lab on it right away!”

  7. I invent dances to do during commercials. I also sing. Sometimes my audience err… family throws things at me. I keep going.
