We'll Be Enriching Ourselves Through...

You voted!  We promised!  So starting this Fall, Kate and Lydia will be...

Tapping their way to fame and fortune!  It is going to be so awesome.  The outfits!  The shoes!  The performances!  This is going to be public humiliation for Lydia on a whole new level.

We had many options for you to choose from and this is what you picked for us.  Although, I think one commenter had a really great idea for us and we might have to try it in the Spring.  She thought Kate should take Intro to Swashbuckling (Fencing and Historical Swordsmanship) and I should take Samurai 101 (Historical Japanese Swordsmanship) and at the end of the classes, we should have a Battle Royale.  Cap'n Coupon thinks we should call it "The Battle Royale With Cheese".  He also strongly encourages us to do it sober. 

Silly Cap'n!

But that's for the Spring.  This Fall, tap is on tap.  But... We might try and take Krav Maga, too.  For four extremely important reasons:

(1) Because the combination of dancing in special shiny shoes and lethal Isreali hand-to-hand combat techniques is a perfect fit for us.
(2) As spies and crime fighters, we think we may need both skill sets.
(3) Full contact tap dancing doesn't exist. Yet.
(4) We had an imaginary conversation with Dule Hill (our tap sensai) and he told us he strongly approved of this plan.

So we're off to register for classes and purchase our new tap shoes!  Stay tuned for what comes next!

xo, Kate & Lydia

  1. OMG I cannot wait to hear about the adventures of Kate and Lydia in tap dancing!

  2. Yeaaaaa!!! I just watched my daughter take her first tap class (she's three!) this summer, and aside from the fact that I was cute-ed to death, the memories came flooding back! :-) I want to take a mommy tap class too!!! Can't wait to hear all about it, and videos are going to be a MUST!

  3. Awesome! Can't wait to hear all about it! You two are the BEST! LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! (And exclamation points!!!)

  4. Still disappointed you won't begin your Slayerette training. Grabbing my green coffee mug, chewing on the earpiece to my glasses, and muttering "This just won't DO."

  5. YAY! Why do I feel as though somehow I won tap lessons or something? :)

  6. This is going to be GREAT!!!

  7. Whatever Dule says, you should do.

  8. I say you tap a t-box before class and write it off as dress rehearsal.

  9. Can we spend some more time talking about Dule Hill? I heart him. I watch West Wing reruns just to watch him. Well- it's partly just to watch him. I just plain miss the show. Great... now I'm sad. OH wait! Thinking about you two tapping in white tights just made me happy! Maybe I'll go rent "White Knights"...

  10. OMG, you all liked my battle royale idea!!! That's probably the first awesome idea I've had in years. Wait, that's kinda sad. Is it also sad that when I see a sign that says "Dance Classes $20/mo," I immediately think, "I'd LOOOOOVVVEE to do that ... and so affordable, too!" And when I realize it's probably kids' class, I still think I'd like to sign up? I could totally do it. Shuffle, hop, step. Shuffle, hop, step. Confused? After a few tap classes, you'll know what I'm talking about. ;)

  11. Take Krav Maga too! you'll love it!!

    check out this new clip to give you that push!

  12. I'm still holding out for a belly dance class. :)
