My kid tappers rock. They really do. Saturday mornings are excellent fun because I am blessed with such great students from ace families. It's true.
Today a whole heap of them came and tapped with me at the Collingwood Toy Library Fair. This is our 4th appearance there - some of the kids (including my boys) have done every one since 2007. This is what mine looked like back in those days...
Gawd, talk about babies. Anyway. If you've been reading here long, these shots are probably all starting to look a bit the same but that will not stop me from sharing some of my favourite pictures. However to add interest I'm including a line from the song they're doing and you can have a go at guessing. It's easy-peasy.
I even kissed Aunt Lou. (Tiny Tappers 3-4yos)
Bad guys go running whenever he's in town. (Junior Shufflers 5-7yos)
Put your back into it. (Gliding Groovers 6+ Intermediates)
(Bonus shot of these guys because I couldn't pick which one I liked best)
Shake til you feel better. (Tapsters 8+, advanced)
Everyone enjoyed the show, and all the kids were fabulous and adorable and danced really well. But I think the best feedback for me was several people commenting how good the Tapsters (the big kids class) sounded. Looking cute is one thing, sounding good is a whole 'nother level. They did too, with their timesteps and bombershays.
Thanks again to my roadie and photographer (Mister Fixit), my Production Manager (Nell) my Car Hire company & video recordist (Jen) and all the gorgeous families who came and danced or cheered us on.
For ANZAC Day this is so beautiful and tender
