Hayley Wheatley 15Oct19 - I also thought it was worth mentioning that I have Paul Bailey coming for Christmas and a lot of my dancers love the track Romeo Tonight but find the dance a little too fiddly for them. So as a floor split we are dancing "Outside In" to it. It fits great and has a little slower feel to it that the original.
Ill spread the word to anyone else who may be seeing Paul in the near future
