                                 3) On wall 15 after count 30

           All restarts are easily identified in the music—and are necessary for the flow of the dance


This is a fast waltz and until you get more familiar with the steps it will

seem hard…. But do persevere with it because it’s a lovely song and once

you have got the hang of it you will really like the dance too.

Don’t be afraid to have a go at it because like I always say, the

only difference between a hard dance and an  easy one is practice.


Joni Harms has a terrific voice and she is definitely a favourite of mine.

Have a listen to one of her albums if you get the opportunity

See you on the floor sometime………..  Jan
