Squeak Dancing

Like tap dancing, but squeaky.

Instead of having shoes with metal to tap loudly, they could have rubber (or something else, I have not experimented much) which would squeak loudly when rubbed against the smooth wooden surface. Otherwise this would be much the same as tap dancing.

The rubber would probably have to be tuned to certain notes if this was to go with music, and it would need to be replaced regularly due to wearing-down.

No more 'tappa-tappa', instead 'squeaka-eeka'.

       I have trouble with this, I think that someone with a rubber tip to their shoe will fall over frequently during this exercise...

       The center on our high-school basketball team was a tall, thin, thoroughly uncoordinated chap. Our coach tried hard, but unsuccessfully, to get him enrolled in ballet, to teach him some balance and grace.   

       This idea is precisely the mental image I have always had of the "if only..."   

       Bun.

       Thanks lurch for the bun (it was delicious) and for bringing a smile to my (exeedingly tired) morning.

       Action squeaks louder than words.
