This is a bright little piece of music from the wonderfully funny Topp Twins

who hail from N.Z.  The dance itself is a good teaching tool and should appeal

to all of you dancers out there who consider yourself to be “average”…like I do!

 

If you can’t manage the section from count 32 to the end then don’t fret, just

 do that part of the dance until you can manage the rest. 

However you do it,  I hope you enjoy it – and the music.  Keep dancing and keep smiling.

See you on the floor sometime…..  Jan

                                                                                       

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
