Tap is Tops

When I was in grade 4, my sister, Laura, and I started tap dancing at the Dance Studio in Oliver, BC.  Our tap teacher, Miss Leah Moen, is a very talented tapper and I have ameliorated greatly under her guidance.  I am now in Al Gilbert Tap 5, and some of my favourite steps are wings, pullbacks, and pickups.  Recently, I performed 2 solos in our tap show: "Don't Rock the Jukebox" and "Where I Come From", both by Alan Jackson.  One of these photos was captured of me doing a bell, (heel click), in mid-air during "Don't Rock the Jukebox"-- yee-haw!  I also danced a duet with Laura called "Open the Door, Richard", sung by Al Simmons.  I think tap dancing is a great exercise for both the mind and body, and I will definitely stick with it for life!
