Maxi ford, broadway, buffalo, and timestep are all words that have become an active part of my vocabulary. By the age of ten I was doing wings, pullbacks, and paddle rolls. In fifth grade when my original studio was shut down (due to Ms. Colleen getting married to an idiot), I was forced to attend our rival dance studio, Tinka's. During tap classes we would go over the basics and never learn anything new. I quit before recital and vowed that when I was a dance teacher I would teach quickly to help my students learn more efficiently. Now during my tap classes, although my students do get frustrated, they learn about three steps relative to their status(beginner, intermediate, and advanced) along with one step that is a level above their status. During the first couple of weeks they seem to be really confused but about a month into the class they finally start to get everything. I couldn't imagine life without tap (as weird as that sounds). The rhythms of the feet can convey a story (not as much as a lyrical dance) and awe audiences everywhere.
