So, there’s still dancers around who love this old style country music…… I like that!

Thanks Daphne for your request, it was my pleasure to write this dance for you.

The dance is definitely easy but I hope you still find it interesting. It should be

achievable for any dancer with basic experience…… and I hope you enjoy it!

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
