and I am learning 3 Tap dances for that.

On our last session this week I got my second dance mistake free.

My Charleston

Standard

As you all know I was practicing for

a Tap Charleston Performance

during the last year.

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!

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.

Join in with my enthusiasm for dancing! 

Enjoy !

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!
