Retiree, Palm Beach I started tap dancing at seven-years-old in Dinky Dots tap class in England. Shirley Temple was all the rage. Then the Second World War broke out and my teacher went into the service. My dad went away into the service two days after the war was called, our house got bombed and I didn’t dance again until I was 17 and in the airforce myself. I’m currently 86 and a full-time class taker, from four classes of dance a week, art class and chair yoga to name a few. I love the older style of music, the 1940s big band feel, so my tap and jazz classes are great for that. Dancing makes me feel alive and young.
