The Florence Mall, Y'All

Just call me Tiffany.

Last night I learned that the dance studio where I take lessons will be participating in the Dance for Heart for the American Heart Association. My tap class will be the only adult class dancing. The rest will be the cute little kids and teens.

Very cool, I thought. Until I learned that it's at the mall. As in the Florence Mall.

How humiliating.

What's worse is because I didn't go to class last week as they started making adjustments for the new song and missing people, my line spot changed.

So when I used to be in back, now I'm in front. When I used to shuffle left, now I shuffle right. When I used to start second, now I start first. Everything about the dance I've practiced over the last few months is now reversed, and I have three weeks to learn it again to not make an ass out of myself. (Which is impossible because no matter how well you dance or how many steps you nail, it's still dancing at the mall!)

And I'm sure my neighbors are thrilled to hear my tap shoes ringing against the tile.

Is "tap dancing at the mall" just another way of saying "trolling for mall ass"?

Well, that's what you get for skipping class isn't it? SO when is the big performance...I don't want to miss this.

I'll see you in 2 weeks. Boy, I love the internet....

Gina said...

Whatever. You don't know what time I'll be there... Right? Yikes.

big bri said...

Oh yeah...hate to break it to you but you're not the only one with investigative skills. Gotta work saturday, but i'll be there sunday...in the front row, with camera.

Is there a tape of this performance? I'd be willing to pay up to $10, assuming production values are good.

Gina said...

Only if I get a tape of one of your belly dancing performances.

big bri said...

I smell a 2 for 1 deal somewhere in there

I actually DO have a tape of my performance at the Casablanca, which I don't suppose I have to tell you is WAY classier than even the best mall in Cincinatti!
