Melbourne celebrates International Tap Dance Day 2011

... with a group Shim-sham-shimmy, on the steps of Parliament House, never mind the rain. Fun.

(I'm in the purple coat in case you couldn't already tell and you can *just* see Climber between me and my friend in the red coat, wearing grey trackies and a dark greenish hoodie, plus my old purple tap shoes.)

And just for good measure, Climber discovered he could wing down the steps. I love his satisfied nod at the end.


  1. Looks like fun, apart from the rain! And Climber has got that move down pat!

  2. I tell ya lady, I saw this on the news and I had my eyes PEELED for you (I was looking for purple, of course)...

  3. "And that's the Ethiopian Shim-Sham."

    That nod is ace!

  4. My favourite thing is that you are raising a boy who will wear purple tap shoes in public.

    He deserves to give that beautiful nod.

  5. That's fantaptic! Shame about the weather.

  6. This is really good. I really admire people with dancing talent (significant lack personally).
    Climber is way cool.

  7. I would have fallen on my arse coming down those wet steps!


Don't let the cat get your tongue.
