I realise that this dance did need a couple of tags to keep in phrased to the music but itís just as easy to dance through it and most people wonít even realise they have done it.† I certainly donít mean that in a derogative manner either, itís just a fact of life. Some people Ďfeelí where a tag should be but the vast majority of dancers quite happily dance through it without it causing any problems at all.

Mind you, some songs definitely DO need tags or restarts to keep you dancing in the correct beat, but luckily this is not one of them.

 

Anyhow, after that great waffle on, I hope you enjoy this little dance.

Eddy Raven is terrific isnít he!

See you on the floor sometimeÖÖ. Jan
