As I wrote this dance I noticed that on the outside blind of my window,

 a gecko lizard was looking in at me. I hope he approved of the dance!  (-:

 

I don’t think this dance is hard, in fact, I almost graded it as

easy intermediate…. But not quite!  I leave it up to you to decide…..

See you on the floor sometime…  Jan
