Rhythmic motion, Music’s physique

Like dips and flips and sways and whirls and twirls.

This month’s Tap Into Transformation will “take your passion and make it happen.” Our music is the hit song WHAT A FEELING, the inspiring theme song from the movie Flashdance. This upbeat music and the sizzling choreography we have created will move you to dance through your life like never before! Let the rhythms and moves take a hold of your heart – and see what happens. What a feeling you will have as you live the song lyrics… Being’s believing!

Come join us… husband and wife duo Dr. Jeannine Goode-Allen and Dr. David Sharp. We are performers and teachers who inspire others in the adventure of life. Join us in a transformational evening of tap dancing, song, poetry and more in our gorgeous Viriditas Studio in North Boulder. You will laugh, smile and stomp your feet while feeling the joy of moving your body and opening your heart to awe, wonder, beauty, gratitude and more.

Our world so needs each of us to step out onto the stage of life and make manifest our great potential. Let us pave the way for you to do this through the power of creativity in action.

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity, in a creative community, to acknowledge and share your own gifts, or be inspired to dive into new ones! We will teach you tap steps, and with these tools, we will journey into our hearts to explore and celebrate the human journey, honor its triumphs and challenges,  and spark new breakthroughs in the art of living. We will create rhythms, rhymes, celebration and joy with our feet, voices and bodies. After sharing a scrumptious meal together, we will deepen insights into our personal journeys through reflection, contemplation and conversation.

Sharpettes and Annie Ruth’s Truths, March

I began creating what I call Sharpettes over 30 years ago. As a speaker and writer they became my own way of sharpening my understanding of the meaning, power, and energy of a single word. I am sharing them publicly now in hopes that you will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

The first line is the word.
The second line defines or describes the word twice, 4 syllables for each attempt. You may place a comma or semi-colon between each attempt. So, the second line has a total of 8 syllables.
The third line is a simile. It always begins with the word “Like”, and paints a picture of the word in 10 or 11 syllables.

On some Sharpettes the 4th or 5th syllable of the third line will rhyme with the word on the first line itself. This can yield another insight into the word chosen, and provides a unique and fun poetic challenge.

Can be best friend; Licks and slobbers
Like a loyal companion that’s always there.



Annie Ruth’s Truths are my renderings of folk wisdom and country common sense, gained from a lifetime of listening to my mom, who has a unique way with words, as well as a witty, joyous and playful attitude to go with it! Always fun or sassy, they tell the truth and can make you laugh, shake your head and go “Hmph!” or even make you shout, “Whaaat?!”

Annie Ruth & David

Daughter Celanese was lamenting about the amount of weight she needs to lose. Mom, Annie Ruth, sought to make her feel less stressed about it all, and told her to remember that, “Nobody likes a bone but a dog.”
