This week is the first of three weeks with NO TAP CLASSES! OH MY! Today I hit the gym again, for the third week in a row. I did the cross trainer on the interval programme to warm up and get the heart pumping, followed by the low bike over a varied terrain. Then I did the adductor, abductor and hamstring weight machines, the pec-deck and then some serious stretching before heading back to work. I felt much better this week and actually enjoyed it!
Today’s playlist (including a couple of motivational 80s power tracks*):
- Heaven – Emeli Sande
- Buffalo Stance – Neneh Cherry
- We Built this City – Starship*
- I’m Always Here – Jim Jamison*
- Lose my Breath – Destiny’s Child
- La Vida Loca – Ricky Martin
- California Soul – Marlena Shaw
Last Thursday Rhythm Tap II performed our Naughty Little Flea routine at the college’s Latin dance cabaret evening. The video and some photos were shared on our Whatsapp group and they did so well, despite a brief hitch with the music. I so wanted to be there! Unfortunately, I couldn’t take part because the rehearsals were during work time, straight after our daytime class, which meant taking something like a 3 hour lunch break; although looking back, I probably should have just done it and made the time up because most of the time I ended up being the only person in the office!
Next time, I’m doing the show no matter what!
