I actually took a year of tap when I was in 5th grade. My mom was wicked into it for a while. The idea of making noise with your feet really appeals to me, though in general I'm much more of a modern or pole dancing kind of girl. Modern is just so free. It really lets you do anything. Pole is great for getting in touch with your inner monkey. It appeals to both my martial arts side and my dance side. There's a couple pole places in Boston, though neither particularly close to me, hopefully by the time my son is big enough to go to friend's houses to play there will be somewhere closer by that I can check out.
