Have a nice day, Derek

I watched a couple of demonstrations of this and they are all nice. I appreciate your selection of this good old song and a version with nice tempo.

Many thanks for your kind comments. We appear to be on the same wavelength.

I saw a German version of this stepsheets on the internet but could not find it here on Copperknob. Perhaps I was not searching with the right keyword? Thanks.
This work of yours is unique and admirable. I am a layman, wondering whether you would characterize this dance as a Rhumba/Rumba or NC2S? Thanks.

Well, perhaps not a NC2S. :-)

Derek July 3, 2022
I had no particular style in mind when I choreographed the dance. If I hear something I like I just go for it! If I had to put it in a slot I would suggest Easy Listening Country, or perhaps a 'Stroll?

Hann21921 July 4, 2022
Indeed "Stroll" "walk" are also what I thought of when I watched the demonstration you mentioned here in your first comment. Many thanks.
