The little drummer boy

                                       Copyright Corrina Tough 2012

Here is my little drummer boy- Curtis. He hassled us for some time to get a drum kit- and he is all of 5 yrs old but look at the sheer joy on his face. He comes from a long line of drummers in both families. My husbands great uncle being world famous in the days of Charlie Parker, Billie holiday, Glen Miller big band etc etc and played with famous people in the USA and Europe. He formulated and wrote the famous drumming text book- a precursor to what we know today. I can't wait to see how this little guy goes. We started him on a snare and high hat and we'll add to the kit if he's serious. I love how he hears the rythm in everything even tv comercials and will break out in a tap or break dance. I am willing to let my ears get a bashing for him to follow his creative dream. Its great for boys too- they get out their aggression and energy when they hit those skins! xxCorrina

Tale of a dancer part 2

                                    Copy right Corrina Tough 2012

                              I just love to dance- even dream of it......

                                  Will you come dance with me?

                                                 today at 4pm?

                                                   Just give me a call....

The devine miss Ruby calls a friend to come and dance a dream ballet. Wear your prettiest tutu and ballet shoes,
"Some people move our souls to dance" (Anon) that's what you do for me dear friend. Please come- lets dance together to our favourite music. When was the last time you really let go and moved to a special piece of music- like a child with no inhibitions? Wait til you're alone, put on your favourite piece of music and dance your heart out- it feels sooo good. My favourite at the moment is 'Caravan' the last track on the soundtrack to the movie Chocolat. Even better if you're in the arms of the one you love.xxxCorrina. click the link below to hear caravan.
