Looking at the step sheet this dance may seem harder than it really is.

The Monterey turn is unusual in a waltz but itís easy and feels nice to do.

I wrote the dance in response to a request for an easier dance to this lovely song

because many people canít handle the harder dance by Michael Vera Lobos

called Champagne On Ice† This dance is called Champagne, No Ice!

Hope you enjoy itÖ.. See you on the floor sometimeÖ. Jan
