The closest I've ever gotten to tap dancing was watching Gregory Hines in the movie,"Tap." What do you think about tap dancing contributing to other forms of dance? I wouldn't mind taking some lessons.
I agree...once you start taking lessons you get addicted to making noises with your feet.
When we first learned flaps, our instructor talked about doing them while grocery shopping...now I do them whenever I go shopping. Up and down the aisles I'm justing flapping away. It's pretty funny actually, and now my fiance has picked up how to do them so we do them together. You should see the looks people give us.
I know I've learned shim shams, I just don't remember them. I'll have to ask in class next week.
