I find this music by Eddy Raven hauntingly beautiful.  Unfortunately the song is short - 2 minutes and  26 seconds  . I just do it again to compensate.  I'll bet you do too  because once really isn't enough.  The dance flows well and is reasonably easy.
If you like it just half as much as I do then you will LOVE it!!!!
See you on the floor sometime.....  Jan
