This dance is for those dancers who find A Thousand Ways too hard.

No shame in that….. I like the easier dances the best too… not so much brain drain!

The most important thing about linedancing is the enjoyment of the dance itself …

And if that is missing, then really, whats  to  enjoy????

That’s why it is important to do the dances that YOU find nice….. Trust me, time is short, so enjoy your life!    See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
