    I started ballet and tap at the same time (technically the ballet class was scheduled earlier, so I guess that came first) when I was 6, then quit when I was 10 because my brother had started karate so I had to as well, because it wasn’t safe to let him get an advantage.

    When I was in kindergarten, in 1974, they had our class do a mass “popular dance” class. All the other kids were having a great time and I didn’t know what to do with myself! It was sad. 🙁

    My first dance class was in 1988, my mom thought it would be a good way to meet new people… I was 6 lol

    Step By Step deserves a reunion As it didn’t get a proper series final. With the new show Girl Meets World happening Any chance Step By Step could get a reunion to catch viewers up on where they characters ended up? Patrick Duffy said he’d do one not to mention mentioned the idea. What would it take to make a reunion happen? Starting a kickstarter campian what?!

    So did no one else think that Christine was probably talking about Chris Hardwick’s show when talking about a TV show where people talk about other people’s tweets? Well I enjoyed listening to the last episode of Pop My Culture to be hosted by the Nerdist Network.

    Also, I think Kurt Braunohler needs to hire that sky writer to write “LaBeouf stole my joke” over LA.

    I have never taken an actual dance class, but when I was a wee boy (like 6ish), my sister was always watching Dance Party USA (often times videotaping it to watch it multiple times). I would say that I learned all of my sweet moves from Dance Party USA circa 1989. Needless to say, I am the belle of most balls.

    My first dance class was a jazz class when I was 7 (1988). We danced to “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys at the recital and wore bright red costumes with lots of fringe and gold sequins. Oh, the 80s.

    My first dance class was one that was included in preschool. I don’t even know if it was a certain type except have a bunch of preschoolers try to coordinate movements. I do remember a VHS tape of our group performing at my hometown’s festival called Big Hat Days. I’m not even sure why we were performing there because it was a bunch of 3-4 year olds standing around looking very confused with somewhat of a crowd watching.
