I’ll bet there are lots of us who can  only afford to take a vacation in our dreams these days!

There’s nothing quite like music and dance to take us away from reality for a while….

Just as well I say, because sometimes reality is a real drag on the emotions.

I find that a couple of hours of music and dancing is all it takes to

recharge my batteries in Preparation for the next onslaught of life! (-:

 

Hope you enjoy this little dance and that the music does it for YOU too!

                                                       See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
