I wrote this dance while I was in New Zealand briefly for the Methven Rodeo workshop.

My mate Sue Wilson from Christchurch left me alone with her music collection (silly girl) 

and I rediscovered ‘Kermit The Frog’.  It’s such a sweet song that I couldn’t resist

writing a dance to it…. So here it is  -  hope you like it.

 

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
