As part of our ‘skilling up’ program, for the month of October, The Spokes will be attending Street Dance classes at Sunshine Dance Studios. Last night we attended the first of our classes and we felt very professional rehearsing in a proper dance studio with mirrors and everything. Promisingly, our teacher thinks we do have rhythm, yes The Spokes CAN dance! She also noticed how none of us were embarrassed or self conscious – she clearly had no idea what we normally get up to in public. We had a lot of fun and learnt some interestingly-named moves, including the Smurf, Homer Simpson and the Reebok, which we hope to incorporate into our bike dance routines. Now we have learnt some basics, we are looking forward to doing a whole routine next week.
