I really like this singer, Johnny Rodriquez.

He is good fun and his songs vary from the sublime to the ridiculous.


This dance is not hard, but if you are a new dancer you might find a couple of

the steps a bit different … and of course because it is 4 walls you will need to keep

your mind on the job until you are confident with the steps.

I guess that means that this dance is exactly like most other dances  (-:


Hope you enjoy it.

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
