I wrote this dance for Ilse, who wanted to write a dance for ME, but couldn’t manage it.   

She asked me if I would write it on behalf of her because she didn’t have the talent.

But I disagree with her.  She DOES have the talent… the talent of communication and caring about someone she may never meet face to face. I am proud to call her my friend and have written the dance as she requested.  It’s easy and slow and most dancers will manage it.


Linedancers are such a special group of people… and they seem to be the same all over the world. My recent diagnosis of breast cancer and the subsequent treatments have

elicited the most incredible response from people I have never met. Gifts, flowers, cards, offers of help in all sorts of ways and my computer is just oozing love! 



See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
