Tap into your inner dancer

So tonight after a bit of ‘spread-the-word-on-social-media’ we had quite a class full.

There was a range of newcomers and the experienced; an American-style tapper, those who had salsa-ed and jive-d and ballroom-ed before. There was a runner,  a couple of ladies who wanted to ‘check it out’ and a Mum brought her daughter to see if she’d like it.

The sound of the taps on the floor is empowering as toes connect  followed by heels and a shuffle or two. Ankle-thigh-hip-building strength, brain-challenging, confidence-building and feeling  ‘cool’ that it’s your own feet making that noise.

The Broadway tunes add to the atmosphere of camaraderie yet individualism. We’re partnerless; each of us singularly taking charge of our feet and contributing to the rhythm. Alone but together, part of something bigger but not better than ourselves.

Stories are shared of the fun, the experience and a new-found commonalty within a bunch of women from all walks of life.

Instructor Heidi so aptly put it when she said how we all step outside our bubble into a community of dance, skill, companionship, personal achievement and fun!

I’m out of town for the next three weeks but I know I’ll be very pleased to get to my next class.
