I love Maggies dance but unfortunately, there are lots of people out there

who just can’t manage such a challenging dance.  They’d like to, I know,

because they love the feel of the music, but their bodies won’t keep up

with their minds……. and this dance is for those people. 

Hope it does the trick for you!

No offence to Maggie at all as I hold her in the highest esteem .

She’s incredible to watch, -  a legend in her own time!

                            See you on the floor sometime...Jan
