I love to dance to Dwight’s music...he’s a real honey isn’t he!

 This song feels particularly nice to me and I’ve written a dance that

should keep you interested without being too hard to manage.

Well, that was the idea anyhow, hope it works that way for you!

  See you on the floor sometime….  Jan
