Tapping His Way Through Uptown

Fred Does Uptown

Just when he thought no one was looking, I caught Fred Astaire having fun dancing in top hat and tails along a neon fixture in the Uptown Cinemas empty lobby. Wouldn't it be fun to see a group of seemingly ordinary people waiting at the corner for a light just break out into song and a spontaneous tap dance choreography as if in a musical, like a Flash Mob event? :-) Oh, wait, that might not be too far fetched in the streets of Seattle.

Perhaps on Broadway, where the dance steps are laid out on the sidewalk for you.

Great to see Fred Astaire in any venue. I've always loved his old movies, they were all delightful.

Thanks for your comments about my son this morning on my blog. He'll appreciate being called a "cute dude."

OH I love this one a lot Kim. This may have gone to my #1 fav. THe color, the neon and of course Fred himself. So you take your camera to the movies with you?? Maybe I need to do that more.

I agree. In Seattle the people are always up to a dance.
