                                   Some dancers will love me for that and some will be critical…… you can’t win em all!

 

This is not my usual style of music, but I did enjoy choreographing the dance. It’s Sweet!

Hope YOU like it too.     For something easier to the same music try ‘A Little Bit Sweet’

See you on the floor sometime… Jan
