Good dance with interesting choreography, worth spending a bit of extra time on the fiddley bits and repeating the middle sections several times so everyone could do the dance, just as Dave Spencer says in his review. We nicknamed the traditional jazz boxes 'Shadows walk' to avoid confusion with other jazz boxes when cueing! Most enjoyed the dance but some were not keen on the music.

Taught this at our first class after the holiday. Not an easy teach but the class enjoyed every minute of it and what applause when it was learned. This is going to be a winner. Fabulous music and equally fabulous dance to suit. We are still dancing "Til Forever" and this is in the same class.Georgina and Graham. The Ryton On Dunsmore Hooked On Country Line Dancers

first teach of the year and went down really well they loved it, restarts are easy enough on front wall, the dorothy step jazzbox and switches needs more attention than any other part of the dance but once mastered no problems what so ever. round of applause at the end what more could we ask for

Another Masterpiece of Choreography from Alison & Peter, this 68/2 with a couple of easy restarts, is not only my current favourite dance, but the best dance of the year. It flows effortless to a beautiful track by Helena Fischer called "Wake Me Up" With an excellent response reguarding the dance from all my classes. As far as I'm concerned going to be bigger than "Dance With Me Tonight" I'm sure without a doubt your classes will enjoy it as much as we do in Llandudno. Thanks as always, Alison & Peter, Love It!!

Thanks to Mike for his review, After reading it, I decided to take a look at the dance. Taught it tonight and it got the best response any dance had received for a long time. It twice got a round of applause after being danced which is virtually unknown. The 3 restarts are easy to spot and all on the front wall. Went over sections 5, 6 and into 7 several times which paid off when the music went on. I'd be very suprised if this is not a future Top 10 dance.

Absolutely love this dance. Quite a long teach with some dancers struggling with some of the step combinations. Danced it twice with everyone staying on the floor which was a good sign. Response was good.

Just discovered this dance. Lots of interesting step combinations and once mastered is great to dance. Lovely music and sure it will stay in top ten for long time.

This is absolutely amazing to think how long the dance has been No. 1. It dropped to No 2 for a few days but I notice is back at No 1. Keep it going. Great music and dance.

Really glad to see this one in the top ten. Been teaching it for a couple of weeks now and each time it is put on the floor is full. Instant hit. Little tricky foot work in places but that is what makes it different. Feel good factor when you master it. Great track and 3 very easy restarts all at the front wall. Well done P&A

Was taught this by Peter and Alison, a nice dance with enough to keep you thinking and on your toes and a lovely track of music.

A lovely dance, with three restarts on the front wall, choreographed to a stirring track by Helene Fischer.This should have wide appeal and be a big success for Peter and Alison.

Instant hit with my class as they love Helene Fischer we're still dancing 'Til Forever' by Audrey Watson a year on and I'm sure this will have the same success. Another 'stayer' for A+P.
