I choreographed this dance, as a special request for Lorrae from Childers. Not long after I wrote it another dance was written to a different version of the song but Lorrae is adamant that she wants THIS dance to THIS song by Kellie Caffey……. So, here it is!

When Lorrae sent me the music for this dance I was in a real dilemma.  I liked the song but the phrasing made it almost impossible to write to.  However, on reflection, I decided that it would be a special effort just for her (and anyone else who might like to persevere with the 4 restarts) because the song was so special for her….. and I can relate to it myself!

It’s not an easy dance  because of the restarts, but I hope it still brings pleasure to someone. 

See you on the floor sometime…..Jan
