Some of you may know that I recently started tap dancing classes. The decision to start tap came after watching the Gene Kelly classics Singin’ in the Rain and An American in Paris – swoon!
I used to dance a lot, but stopped about five years ago and after watching Kelly take out the dance floor I realised how much I missed it. I know you are probably thinking “I thought this segment was about trying new things – you’re being a bit lazy aren’t you Chloe?” – I know – because I thought that myself. However to me it feels new. The last time I danced I was pretty much a child and was way more confident in my abilities as a dancer.
That said once I got past the awkward formalities of being introduced to the class and shuffling my way through the first steps, the confidence I once had came crawling back. It was such a great feeling!
I may never be as good a dancer as Gene, but it sure is fun to try!
