I grew up at a time when all girls had to take Ballet and all boys had to take tap dancing... so I had it for a couple of years. Personally, I have never really cared for it.. but when a person grew up with a mother who was in live with Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor... HE HAD TO LEARN HOW TO TAP.
There WAS one benefit, however... I'm 70 yeas old and, to this day, I have a dancers soft walk.. many times, when I was still working full time, I surprised people when walking up behind them without them hearing me coming.
