I started a whole bunch of new routines in the Kids' Tap Classes last Saturday, which is always fun. You can tell when a new tap term is starting because of the startling amount of time and money I suddenly start spending at iTunes. I do love iTunes though. Before iTunes was invented, if I wanted a song I'd have to buy the whole album and although that could occasionally lead to the discovery of more good songs, the single-song purchase is far more economical.
I went a little bit Broadway this term, after one of the grandparents mentioned it was lovely for the kids to hear the old songs. Annoyingly, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was not available as a single song download and I didn't want to buy the whole album so the littlies are dancing to a Chipmunks version. It's funny so far but I'm wondering if I'll hate it by the end of term. While I was in the Chipmunks part of iTunes I also somehow ended up with their versions of Funkytown and All The Single Ladies (whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh oh oh) I don't know, I just quite liked them. It was pretty funny playing the Chipmunks to the kids, we had to halt class for a bit because they wanted to discuss the funny singing and when I said it was The Chipmunks it all segued into them all telling me about what movies they'd seen.
Anyway, the Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious routine as performed by the Junior Shufflers was a clear winner with participants and audience alike. Nell tells me that class gets all the best routines, because they did Woody's Round-Up last term and that was her fave, even if it gave her a permanent ear-worm.
For ANZAC Day this is so beautiful and tender
