I was thrilled to write to this song.  It is sung by our very own Craig Giles  but what makes it even better is the fact that it was also written by Craig  and his lovely wife Roz.... which means that "Raging Fire" the dance, is truly an all Australian effort!  Don't you just love it?  I do!  Ham it up in the bend fwd and ¼ turn straighten up sequence (9-16) because it is meant to be a bit of fun!  Hope you enjoy both the song and the dance.  See you on the floor sometime...  Jan
