A Look at Shay as a Dancer [GALLERY]
I did a blog post last week about it being National Tap Dance Day and listed for you my top 5 tap dancers of all time. I love watching it but I would much rather be doing it! So I decided to let you see me as a tap dancer.
I danced from the time I was 2 1/2 til my mid 30’s, when life got in the way. You start out with a few years of ballet to get the basics, then you can take tap and jazz. Once you’ve been tapping for awhile then you graduate to “heels” that’s such a huge thing for a tap dancer, or it was for me anyway.
I think maybe I was 13 or so when I got on heels. What’s funny is as you then get older you want to go back flat taps. I even had a pair that were attached to what looked like a tennis shoe.
I quit dancing a few years back but would love to go back and as I said my former dance studio, Patty Harper Dance Studio, takes you no matter your age, there is always a class that you can join.
So here are a few of my dance pictures from years past. I range in age in these photos from about 3-18. I can’t take credit for the photos, they were taken by Roberts Studio, who always did a beautiful job working with little dancers.
Hope you enjoy these and get a good giggle like I did looking back!
