This dance was devised when ...

This dance was devised when the Utrecht SCD-group (www.theswilcan.nl) was informed that the gymnasium where we danced was to be be demolished on very short term. Fortunately we found another hall in time, but I devised this dance to celebrate our last dance class in the old hall.

The dance author has asked that the original description be published here.
