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.

Hayley Wheatley 11jun20 - Great if you can keep choreographing to pass the time, it stops us feeling a little lost. I certainly find it strange being a line dance teacher without classes.
