I’m not sure what the name of the song ‘Una Paloma Blanca’ means but I think that Una means ’one’ and I think   that  Paloma means Dove and I do know that the music moves you along pretty quickly…… hence the name  The Speedy Dove. 

Yes, I know I’m whacky but it takes all types to make a world they say!   (-:

 

Hope the dance appeals to YOU!    

       See you on the floor sometime….  Jan
