Although this dance has restarts and tags, they are really an

integral part of the dance and don’t feel like an ‘Extra’ at all. 

You will just have  to give it a go to realize what I mean by that. 

It is a beautiful song and you will enjoy dancing to it I am sure. 

 

We still do Terry Hogan’s dance to this song and we love it, but it’s a bit too

difficult for some dancers and hence the request for something easier. 

I was happy to oblige, of course!  (-:

 

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
