Dancing - The Aftermath
|That's me, front and centre at dress rehearsal, just about to turn around and give the tap performance of my life!|
Would I do it all again....hmmmm.
I love tap dancing, but I have never been great at the whole smile and dance thing, performing. It's just not me.
I have joined a tap class, I am doing a tapathon in November for charity and this feels much more up my street. I hear a rumour there is a performance planned by this tap class, something about Wake me up before you go go...' Oh no.
We will see, I am still recovering, but I have finally found a form of exercise I am comfortable with, and I have been riding my bike more, taking my orders to the post office. So in general, I am getting fitter. My heart is having some exercise so this is a good thing.
Am I losing weight? No. It's obviously all just turning into muscle *ahem*.
Do I feel better for it? Yes. My knees still complain and I make all the old person noises when I sit down and stand up, but I think they are complaining slightly less than before, so maybe they are getting stronger or something.
Overall, it has been a great experience, and it's got me back into my tap shoes which is great. So no complaints from me.
