Tap of the Morning to You

What do you do when you find a perfect fitting pair of tap shoes? Go tap dancing!
I have started to take tap dance classes at "Steps on Broadway" in Manhattan.
One of the first things that I did in this life was dance (ballet, jazz and tap!) I remember "shuffle-ball-change," but that was about it. I also remember peeing my tights on the ballet bar becaase I was trying to wait until class got over. Keri Weisser (Rachel's mom) saved me that day with some extra clothes. I remember other things but that was the most interesting visual I could think of. I wish I had my dance pictures on the internet to show you with my bright costumes. Instead, here is a cute one of some girls.

This is the only picture of the studio I could find. The hallway is always filled with dancers.


This is the teacher of the class I have been attending. Her name is Lynn Schwab and she got into tap dance at the age of 25. This give me hope!

Ahh yes Annie, you were our little Jon Benet Ramsey. Why don't you revamp the midget hooker look, you wore it well. I remember the peed tights incedent. Good times! I peed my tights yesterday in the grocery store and nobody noticed.
