It's really good to know that other clubs and classes are doing my dances, and especially when it appears in a club's top 10 dances as printed in various magazines, reviewed on-line, or included in a teaching survey.
This page will mention YOUR name or club as and when I hear about it...
Thank you for your votes, reviews and teaching my dances- it really means a lot to me.

Evie, BC Canada 11jun19 - The gals loved your dance and it went well. I used Alan Jacksonís Living On Love for the slow teach and it worked well. One gal liked it better than the song called for.

Lyn McKinnon 23may19 - I have been looking at your dance I like it a lot and have learnt it.We can dance it on Friday night and will be teaching it at both classes.

Lin daDance 23may19 - Thanks, Diana, I'll check it out in the next few days--I have quite a few dancers in my class that don't like turns much (they do some, but Ö..) --sometimes I can show them an alternative, sometimes, I just don't do the dance--have to see how this one works out. Hope you understand. Great song--hope we can use it.Keep me on your list, please.
Reply - There is a triple threequarter turn in the dance which shouldn't be too much of a problem for those that don't want big turns, (or they can do a coaster quarter turn left instead) and the double turn at the end can be simply replaced with another rocking chair. Hope that helps!
