Soooo…did your mama make you take piano lessons?
Or did she force you to play the violin?
Well, my friends—you must trust me when I say,
there are worse things. I mean she could have put you in a TAP class.
I suppose that kids these days would positively hate it—but back then, other than the fact that it was terrifically UNcool, it was actually—dare I say—
Yeah…I know. But, here’s the thing—we got to wear shiny, noisy shoes and sticky-outty dresses and be in shows…ok, mostly at rest homes, but still.
We liked it because it was something to do and it was—like I said, pretty fun.
Well, except when Mrs. Ross, the squeeky little tapping dance teacher yelled and screamed at us. That was pretty scary.
The dance number here was called “Pretty Baby” and I’m the blonde “fro-girl” on the right. My sister was too “grown-up” for this number. Naa-naa.
If, by chance you are feeling great sadness and anxiety over that fact that YOU didn’t get to take a tap class–well today’s your lucky day. Yessiree! Now, with the magic of the internet YOU can learn to tap this very minute. Don’t waste another moment–Click HERE. You know you want to.
If, however, you are way too young to know what the heck I’m even talking about,
It’s likely for the best.
