This dance was a present ...

This dance was a present to Maguy from her friends Stephen, Nicole and Ken. Maguy was given it on 7 April 2007 along with a recording of her tune. Maguy was very touched by this. The dance’s name describes Maguy well as she always wore bright colours, turquoise being her favourite. The dance was devised to celebrate her love of life and SCD. Maguy loved slow airs and her favourite figures were the poussette all round, the bourell and tandem reels and these figures form the basis of this dance. Stephen danced this dance with Maguy in Lyon on 25 May 2007. Maguy took SCD to heaven in July 2007.
