Rosie gave me this music  and requested the dance — thanks for that.   The song is in fast waltz timing, but I have chosen NOT to do a waltz.  It’s definitely not an easy dance, thanks to the timing of the song.   Hope it appeals to those dancers who like this level of dance

See you on the floor sometime…………..  Jan
