This dance is choreographed as a Performance Piece for our Winter 2016 Event- our theme is along the lines of a Night with the Gods/ Mythology Night. We will use this dance on its own during the evening, but also have a special presentation which combines this music and dance with our Blue Venus dance and its corresponding music. If you are interested in info on this separate arrangement of dance and music please email me: willbeys@aol.com or check my website after Oct 30th
