This is a tricky little dance but because I love the song so much I just had

to persevere with it.  It’s really slow,  and that makes it harder. 

You know, anyone can do a fast dance because you can fudge the steps, but to do a slow dance properly you need to execute your steps properly, and you need to have good balance and timing ….. And all of that takes lots of practice!

Have a go and see what you think… it may not be as hard as I think!

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
