but i want to learn to tap dance. i think it would be a blast… not to mention how great my legs would look! do you think i could find old lady tap dance classes? i don’t think the 6 year old girls would want me in their class.

I took ballroom dance last year and it was a blast... go for it!!! My legs did kill me.. but I had a great time and so would you. Tap sounds so fun!

I have quite a few friends that took up tap dancing for exercise. They loved it! Call me when you have your first recital.

I agree with Heather...go for it! There are certainly adult tap classes. And do you know that tap dancing burns roughly 600 calories an hour???? (Well, I read that, anyway!)

Totally do it! They have adult classes everywhere. I did ballroom dance and loved it. I want to do tap sometime and totally plan on it!

Do it! Sounds like we've all had a similar thought. I think more than a workout it's just freeing. You can't help but smile/laugh while tapping. It only took one round of classes and a single performance (Mambo No. 5) for me to get it out of my system but it was fun. Need a pair of slightly worn size 8's?

I've always wanted to tap dance. I picture being in 42nd Street and tapping with glitzy gold shoes! Wouldn't that be FUN?

ok, really??? I tried to get you to come and take the adult tap class at my studio, but to no avail...and here you are wanting to do it again...well, DNA may no longer be around but you can come and take the classes at either two studio's I teach at...one in Rancho Santa Margarita and one in Cypress. I'll get you the schedule's of both.

Oh my ever loving goodness!! I have been thinking the exact same thing--honestly!! The school where my daughter takes ballet and tap offers an adult tap and I am so thinking of taking it. This group even does an act in the Spring Recital--Eeek!! Let's do it, k?

I've been teaching an adult tap dance for the past 4 years, and it's a blast! I say do it! I'm sure you'll be able to find a place.

Our gym offers adult tap classes and I have to confess I want to sign up, too! Tap was my favorite when I was growing up. It's so fun to do and fun to watch, too. Yes...great idea...

Go for it! I'm fairly certain most dance studios teach adult classes or you could always go for private lessons. (Although they will be more expensive.) I took beginner adult ballet lessons last year with the ladies who took the adult tap class in the class before mine. I sometimes got there early enough to see them practice their tap routine and they really looked like they had fun.
