Dancing through the years ♥

Standard

We had practised for an exam before Covid happend.

Luckily we could pick up and restart when the Covid restrictions were lifted this year.

We could practice again and we did the exam.

What a wonderful way to end the year, with another trophy.

This Third Goldbar is for Street dance.

My collection is complete:
Third Goldbar in Tap dance. 
Third Goldbar in Street dance.

This means, I have completed
15 exams and 5 performances in my dancing life. 

I am proud of my achievments.

I love dancing, still from now on – no more exams…. let just the fun continue ♥♥♥.

Let’s dream and dance into the new year!

Another Performance

Standard

It was time again for a new dance performance

Tap and Freestyle.

For Tap we did a Tango – routine to

‘Perhaps, perhaps,  perhaps’

 

 

followed by another routine to ‘my future husband’ – Megan Trainer.

I loved every bit.

This was the outfit!

 

 

For Freestyle we danced to ‘Shut up and dance’

we wore a lovely red skirt with petticoat, silver belt, white T-shirt and red scarf.

 

I did love the petticoat, it makes dancing even more fun!

We also did a great routine to Justin Timberlake – I got this feeling:

 

We had a fantastic time, so did the audience.

Broadway next…… ?????  🙂

We now had our performance and it was a great success.

I loved it, having the Flapper dress on and

enjoy 6 minutes of the roaring 20’s.

My Christmas Present to you!

Standard

dance

After a recent post about my dancing for my exams, I had many lovely comments and some asked to post a video of it.

I am finally brave enough to do this and miraculously I managed to put it through you tube onto this post.

I have no Charleston dress on, sorry as it was a training session but you can see the dance.

This is my present to you all for Christmas and I hope this makes you smile or even laugh….. and happy.

Join in with my enthusiasm for dancing! 

Enjoy !

Sent to you with much love

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

and

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)
