Note: This dance is based on the dance by Jose Miguel Belloque Vane and Roy Verdonk.
I simplified it somewhat for my 80 and 90 year old senior dancers. Thank you to Jose and Roy for the basic fun and peppy dance.
And my heartfelt thanks to the dancers at Atria Canyon Creek senior living community in Plano, TX, who helped me work out the changes from the original dance.
