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
