REPEAT

We finally did it. We choreographed a dance together. After 2 other attempts that ended up as Peter's dances Out of Habit & R-E-S-P-E-C-T, we have choreo'd Jamaica Mistaka together. We really liked the reggae beat & hope that you do too. And as for that title-we just couldn't resist the play on words. Remember there's never a mistake in line dancing-it's called a variation. Cheers!
