Dwight Yoakam and Sheryl Crow - what a great combination!  The music just makes you want to dance...... and dance you shall!  This is not an easy dance, a bit out of character for me I guess, but I wrote it for the harder section of a choreo comp at Tamworth 2003. Like everything in life, once you can do it, it is no longer hard.  It's just perseverance that makes the difference between hard and easy..... or heart.. My Dad used to say that if you had the heart for it, you could do anything  you wanted to.... and the irony of that is he died on the operating table with someone poking around in his heart.. He might be gone but his words stay with me and anyone who has ever lost someone will know what I mean. The older you get, the more people you lose - that's the pattern of life... but I wish it wasn't like that!.     
Anyhow, back to the dance - have a go at it if you like the music because it's not tooooo  bad.
See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
