Hi Stephen . It's now February 2022 . Where has the time gone when you first released this lovely dance. to now 2022....To be honest here on our piece of coastline Wales (UK) we have never stopped dancing it.....Four friends we danced together in a bubble ,when restrictions lifted and full lockdowns were inforced we still practised in our own living space. Thank you for being one of the few professionals who kept giving and working it meant alot ...
