tap dancing - If you're a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers lover like I am, and IF you've ever 'tried' to tap dance...it's NOT easy! Tap dancing is a FABULOUS way to tone the body, especially the buttocks and legs. It gives you an unbelievable cardio workout, and is LOTS of FUN!
“Once after a dinner party, Gregory Peck and I drove Fred Astaire home. Fred lived in a colonial house that had a long porch with many pillars. When we dropped him off, he danced along the whole front porch, then opened the door, tipped his hat to us, and disappeared. Wow! Greg and I couldn’t speak for a few minutes. It was a beautiful way to say thank you." -Kirk Douglas
I used to buy in to the story my women friends like to tell that Ginger Rogers did everything this guy did but backward and in heels and he still got all the credit - and then I saw Swing Time - Not to take anything away from her, but Fred Astaire is freaking amazing!!!
Fred and Adele Astaire. My grandmother always spoke of these two,(brother & sister) and how wonderful they were. I believe she saw them on the stage!...very cool.
