I am so happy and I need to share my happiness!

As you all know I love dancing and I do take tap dance lessons.

tap1No not this one…….

But…. with these……


Our next venture is exam time again for Gold bar 2 this time.

Did I really make it that far, I ask myself.

The best thing is…..

we do 3 dances for the exam and we have learnt 2 of them so far….

a Tango


wait for it…

a Charleston.


The 3rd one…. I don’t know, and I don’t mind as I am so in love with the first 2.

Every time we have an exam I think it can’t get better and every time it does get better.

I love the steps and I love the music.

Our teacher is the best.

He is so much fun, is patient, is funny and believes in us!


Here are my two tap heroes: (apart from my teacher)

Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, my two tap heroes

Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, my two tap heroes


I love it and I will practice as much as possible!

  1. WOW!!!! Ich bin begeistert, Ute!! DAS kΓΆnnte mir auch gefallen, aber 100 %tig!
    Ich tanze auch fΓΌr mein Leben gern und ich liebe Musik ΓΌber alles, kann mich total in ihr verlieren.

    Jetzt wird es aber auch mal Zeit, dass du ein Video von DIR postest, damit wir was zum Gucken haben πŸ˜‰

    Es ist eine wunderbarere Musikrichtung, ich denke auch schwer zu lernen und man kommt schnell außer Atem. Aber es ist das beste Workout, lol πŸ™‚


    • Ja, es ist ein gutes workout und es macht mich gluecklich! Es wollen so viel e ein Video… hmm ich muss es mir mal ueberlegen und noch ein bisschen mehr ueben. Ich bin froh dass dir tanzen auch gefaellt, es ist einfach was schoenes! Vielen Dank fuer deine lieben Worte !

  2. Best post ever!!! I am so happy for you, Ute!!! I know how happy dance can make a soul!!!! You are infectious with you spirit ((((looks for my ballet shoes))))). Please post videos!!!!! Pretty pleeeeease!!! πŸ™‚

  3. Love Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly and it was so much fun to listen to Mantovani again. By the time I got to the end of your post I thought my two left feet might be ready to dance too. Your enthusiasm is contagious.

  4. Wow, that’s great Ute! Good luck for the exam! (Not that I think you would need any…)

    I danced standard & latin during my youth (until “gold star”, that’s at least the German name…), did some tap dance, later (which I am missing a lot!!) and explored salsa for a bit. I am still hoping to find a way to continue with one of them and still have my dancing shoes. So I understand your joy and am sharing it whole heartedly!

    Much love and “thumbs up” from Hamburg!

    • Great to know you danced too. You really should pick up one at least, it is so wonderful and well worth it. I did ballroom to Bronze only as teenager. I bet you are really good! Thanks for letting me know, nice to know another dancer!

  5. What a lovely post Ute. I think it’s your best personal one. I am sure you will fly through your exam. Is it multi-choice questions ? πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox πŸ˜€

  6. This is excellent. I am so glad that you are doing something that you really love doing. I’m sure you will easily dance your way through the Gold Bar 2 πŸ™‚

  7. That’s fantastic, Ute. Granny tap-danced too, but got trouble with her feet in her menopause, so she had to stop 😦 We’re really happy for you and Will cross my paws for ya. Pawkisses πŸ™‚

  8. I love the Charleston as well Ute. Much more than the Tango for sure and Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly are my dance heroes as well. Have fun hon and enjoy. πŸ˜€ *big hugs*

    • Oh great, they are just fantastic to watch dancing, aren’t they? Charleston is my favourite, so nice to know you love it too! Thanks for telling me, makes me happy! πŸ™‚

  9. What a cheerful blog to start off my day – I love the music and dance from the 30’s and 40’s … I would love to learn to dance – it looks like so much fun!
