A very very crazy song and script. But it's really funny. :D

Dolly - my mom - had so much fun creating this dance oh so many years ago. It is so much fun to see how many people like it and have shared it. It is also fun to see that someone else made a dance after her dance so even more line dancers can enjoy movement and music. Miss Dolly has other dances too. There is a new Halloween one to share: Witch Doctor - Easy ABC. Her group of friends did a 50's dance to Lollipop and took some Country/Americana to local senior centers during July 4th! Check out her channel on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgFU8244-kyaPvfiZcLQRZQ?view_as=subscriber
So Proud of my MAMA! Have fun keeping each other in line! I'm sure we will have more to share soon. Thank you so much to all of our community of dancers!
