                                    It’s a privilege to have been asked to  choreograph for Holland’s

           Line dance community I hope I have given you something that you

           will like.  The dance is not hard but it is still interesting enough

           and the song by Rick Trevino is good old country music.

Please enjoy ‘No Laughing Matter’

 

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
