I love this sweet little song by Tania Kernaghan.

The dance is easy so most dancers will manage it.

 

Swinging chairs are a thing of the past…. Like most good things!

If YOU have one, you are very lucky…..make sure you use it 

                                        See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
