This is a lovely song and it was my pleasure to write this dance for Sandy. 

It was hard to grade the dance because it’s really too hard for easy intermediate level and too easy for intermediate….. So I called it ‘Upper Easy Intermediate’.  Doesn’t matter what level it is really because as I always say, the only difference between an easy dance and a harder dance is how long it takes for you to master it . Once you know the dance then levels just aren’t important.

Have a go at it because the steps are all achievable and the tempo is slowish.

See you on the floor sometime……  Jan
