Very enjoyable, would also look good in a demonstration

Angelika Schmidkonz · Sept. 9, 2020, 1:57 p.m.

Our dancers really liked this dance and asked me to keep it in mind for repetition on another night. They liked the unusual arrangement of the five dancers and the feel and flow of it and thought (which I can confirm having watched and not danced it myself) that it would look great in a demonstration if danced nicely.
