London: Actress Helena Bonham Carter has signed up for tap dance classes.

"The great thing about our job is that it makes us do stuff we`re naturally too lazy to do. I`m proud of myself that I`m finally doing tap lessons. That was a New Year`s resolution. I thought, `Just do it! When are you going to make the time?" a website has quoted her as saying.

In her free time, she tries to balance both - her classes and spending time with her children.

"In my free time, I learn to tap dance. Do something with children. Bond. Remind them, `Hello, I am your mother.` The free time is spent with the children."

"I think if you`ve got a child, you`ve got to show them how to love life and what the good things to do are. I love that. And I love what I get back from them, which is imagination and play," she said.
