Tap number

Michael, the choreographer for the show I’m in, just taught the tap number to the four cast members (including me) who will be doing it in the show. It’s fun. A couple people haven’t tapped before, one woman has done it lots (she was putting pullbacks into her Maxi Ford turns and rolling ‘em out like lightning), and I’ve studied for a few years but it’s been about four since I last did it seriously, so I lag a bit. Anyway, I’m looking forward to it. It’s fun stuff with interesting rhythms. I hope I get the custom tap shoes that I ordered before the show opens: my old ones are held together with duct tape, not to mention that they’re too tight.

And this bit on gender bending in toons is old but interesting.
