This dance is dedicated to everyone who can no longer enjoy the dancing, friendships and camaraderie found in the wonderful world of line dancing because of the dreadful Coronavirus outbreak. I know the words of this beautiful song by Larry Alderman reflect the sadness and feelings in our circle of line dance friends.

Thanks to Jan Brookfield for introducing me to the music of Larry Alderman.

Bless you, Derek. Be assured that our entire line dance family is feeling the same right now, but the circle isn't exactly broken … it just has a few kinks and knots in it. ;-) … Hopefully it won't be too long before we're safe to meet up and dance again. It will be a time for huge parties. :-D
Keep yourself safe and well. Thank you for all the lovely dances and songs. xx
