I love this piece of music - it gives me goose bumps. Hope you like it too.
The dance is not too hard, but it is certainly not a beginner dance.
It will keep you moving along in spite of the slowness of the tempo,
but I hope you get time to 'feel' the music… 'cos it's beautiful!
See you on the floor sometime…… Jan
