Every Spring for the last 11 years Eddie, Vivienne and I have organized 'The Spring Workshop'. The aim initially was to give local dancers the opportunity to learn from Internationally known Choreographers and Instructors. The event has been very successful and we sold out again this year, Roy Verdonk from The Netherlands and Guillaume Richard from France were our terrific International Guest Instructors. Thanks so much to all the dancers who attended.
It has become a tradition for Vivienne and me to write a dance for the workshop with our guests as you will see from the following and this year it was ''Numero Una' which raced straight up to the top of he Copperknob chart. You can see Step sheet/Videos here.
