         This is a reasonably easy,smooth flowing dance that I wrote

especially for my Victorian workshop with Peter Jeffs at

 Mornington Peninsular Victoria, in October 1999.

 

The music is slow, but something about it really appealed

to me.  It feels a bit “islandy”- if you know what I mean!

 

I hope you like it.   See you on the floor sometime...Jan
