Hip Hop and Banjo

I’m taking an “Absolute Beginner Hip Hop” class today. I’m looking for alternative ways to exercise and I thought this would be fun. I could dance around my house and feel better about it if I know some fun movements, and at the next wedding I’m invited to I will look less like a spazz.

I plan to bring my camera, but who knows if I will take pictures. I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable. I’ll see. It’s a “semi-private” class, which means I won’t be the only student. I’ll bet I’m the only one there in their fifties. Ha. Maybe not!

And the other day I saw this guy playing banjo at the Greenmarket. I’ve been reading all these books and articles about the brain and music, which make me feel good because all the music I learn every year is good for my brain. And I thought I should go back to learning to play the banjo. I still have the banjo I bought, what the hell. Brain exercise.

Exercise all over the place!

Don’t forget, try the new show: Warehouse 13.
