I used to love dancing ....

Wonderful Fennel. So nostalgic.

You need a willing partner to dance don't you? I think they are like hen's teeth.

My feet are same as yours Jalima they don’t move as I expect them to
Why on earth are they asking us? Is it for comedy value? Are they looking for the John Sargaents and Ann widdecombs of the world
Nah not I

I'm OK if I can stand on the spot and move a bit without moving my feet.
However, having seen a video of me doing this I would prefer not to perform in public, thanks.

although I did have a few tap dancing lessons years ago - as an adult smile

On second thoughts, forget I said that .....

If I could get up and walk to the kitchen without falling over, I would give this dance thing a go.grin

I used to be a good dancer but I am afraid they are 20 years too late.

Jalima1108 Sat 09-Jun-18 15:09:43

Do we get given sparkly frocks though?
And our hair and makeup done for free?

Could be worth considering

Loved that Fennel smile

Jalima1108 Sat 09-Jun-18 19:03:05

Thank you Fennel, that was brilliant!
I have danced to that number but never like that grin

We went to see The Drifters in Majorca years ago - not all the original line-up but it was a great show.

I could do the hand jive if the OP is interested?
No?
