Kitchen tap.

Amid all the worries and upheavals of the past six months, there has been one constant; every Tuesday night Ben attended tap dancing classes. With lots of help and encouragement, and very determined regular practice at home in the kitchen, the absolute beginner has learnt to tap dance. He's not in the Studio D All Stars concert but we will be in the audience for the Sunday matinee performance, singing along to the chorus of Johnny O'Keefe's Shout. Why tap? Well it was the only class available for adults at the local dance school and it turned out that the tap class was a lot of fun. We have to thank Kelly, the teacher who started term three on crutches, and the other students for all their help. Special thanks go to Kathleen, without exaggeration the most organised person in the whole world and also an experienced tap dancer, who patiently and happily mentored the new student every week.
