One of the first moves to conquer if you want to be able to cut shapes properly is, ‘The Running Man’.
However, since I’ve been learning this modern dance with my 10 year old daughter, I’ve come to understand why young children stick their tongue out when colouring and drawing. It somehow helps you to concentrate.
“What’s wrong with you? You look like you’re in pain.”
I ignore the remark coming from my other half who is having problems keeping his shoulders still, and focus on my sideways shuffle. I am trying to get my right foot to swivel while my left one hops behind it.
Not an easy task, but like I said in my previous blog, Cutting It Fine I think I am doing really good, so I’m a little bit ** in denial.
The next swift leg move brings on my third hot flush of the day. As I wipe sweat of my brow, I ponder on how I got to be ‘a woman of a certain age’ so quickly.
Many would advise, “Do yourself a favour Love: sit down, relax in front the telly and watch Strictly Come Dancing. Much less strenuous me dear, and besides it’s more suited to your vintage than what these younguns are busting out.”
Oh no, no, no, no! Ballroom? **That’s for old people.
