This is an old song but it has always been a favourite of mine -  and so many years have gone by now that most people will have forgotten it I suppose.  Then  of course, there are those of you who haven't been dancing long enough to
remember it anyhow.  I know you will like the song because it is just simply beautiful……. and I hope you enjoy the dance as well.  If you have trouble with  the final  2 beat turn,  leave it out and waltz straight ahead. 
See you on the floor sometime…...Jan
