RE: gay gordon??
Poster: Becky McEllistrem <beckymc@MICROSOFT.com>
Gay Gordon in Meridies was very different music from Road to the Aisles
about 20 min long. It wasn't as difficult a dance as the one in Road to
but the ladies spun around the men quite a bit more often and made me
dizzy. I've never seen this particular form danced in Atlantia but I've
here 5 years.
