Dance Information:
This dance was written by Andrew Smith for Ramez Habash, when he moved away from the Leafmore Scottish Dance Class in Atlanta.  Ramez is a native of Jordan, who was game to come to America and try all sorts of new things, like SCD, and we're so lucky to have fun, adventurous people like him.
