BWDA magazine - Members reviews - A GOOD YEAR (for the roses) - a nice easy listening track which many will remember. I would class the dance as the higher end of improver level. 64 counts but some sections are repeated so it does not feel so long. A good dance for warming up or cooling down or one to throw in between the harder ones to give your brain a rest. We had a singalong with it as many knew the words from way back. - BWDA magazine June 2011

Marilyn Clapham wrote about A GOOD YEAR (for the roses)...."If this is not a hit I will eat my hat!! The music is beautiful and there hasn't been such a flowing good dance for ages like this. My class will love it. I do. Thank you Marilyn x :-) " - email 12 May 2011
