Thanks so much for another really great dance. I learned it by the time I watched your video a couple of times.
To me, that's a sign of a really well written dance that goes perfectly with the music. I love the fact that your choreography matches the words "stop" and "turning around". I plan to teach it today!

Wanted to let you know that Jamaica Farewell was a hit at the Strongsville, Ohio Jamboree. I got lots of positive feedback all the way around….I think it was the favorite teach.
