This song was written and performed by an Aussie….. Bob Mildren. 

He’s a big hit at the Redland’s RSL (Qld) and is one of Brisbane’s leading solo artists.

I think he is terrific and have written this dance for Bob and his wife Terri .

It’s not a hard dance so everyone should be able to get up and enjoy dancing to Bob’s song.

 Hope you enjoy it……..  Our classes certainly do!

It’s pretty obvious how the dance got it’s name….in Bob’s Dance we do “The Bob”

See you on the floor sometime….. Jan
