Today, I went to the dance recital for the lovely daughter of some friends of mine. It was a long recital--almost 4 hours (with a break). Anyway, it was delightful. It started with 4 year old dancing bumble bees (adorable), and went through many different ages and styles of dancing. My friend's daughter was a dog dancing to a very jazzy song (can't remember the title.
One thing that, for some reason, got me thinking about tap dancing was a wonderful routine danced by young adults dressed in super-hero and super-villain costumes. It was perfectly danced and I was amazed that Batman could dance so with with a cape. In the end, the heroes put a rope around the group of villains and they tapped off of the stage to great applause and laughter.
I know that tap dancing wouldn't make everyone dance for joy, but it was a great part of the recital. Who knows? Maybe I'll dance as Cat Woman some day.
Music and dance--to someone who sometimes feel she has forgotten how--is so great for the soul.
