This is another easyish dance done to an old country classic.
          I wrote this dance at the request of some dancers in my home town who  like to go to the local club and dance there. The  resident singer  likes this song and it is always included in his repertoire.  Many southern visitors come to
Hervey Bay during the winter  months and  join the dancers at the club - so if YOU are  one of those  visitors....you better learn this dance!!!.

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