There were six of us and we did a little routine to Dean Martin’s catchy ‘Aint that a Kick in the Head’. You can click on the title to hear him sing it on YouTube. It’s amazing how much difference the music makes. I had difficulty practising without it, as every step came at a certain point in the song – that’s what dancing is all about to me, and the notes make me dance!
So was it worth it? Oh, yes! I always used to sing and dance as a child but I just never got the chance to do it on stage. And one of the best things about getting older is the inhibitions lessen again. I read in a glossy magazine that if an older woman wants to know what her real personality is, she should think back to what she was like as an eleven year old, before puberty. And you know what? That seems to be perfectly true!
For a complete change of pace - I'm talking about Regency dancing on my other blog.
