WAGONWHEELER C/W DANCE CLUB OF NJ
MUSIC: CD 'STUCK ON LOVE'S HIGHWAY, by Patti Davis and Bandit

This dance is being done in many parts of the United States and Europe. The CD and dance were introduced to country music/dance enthusiasts in Zurich, Switzerland by Bunny and Ken when they taught at the No Limits Dance Club there. Patti Davis and Bandit, and the Wagonwheeler Dancers performed at the United Nations Building in New York at the staff ball, and for Barbara Mandrell at her private party in the Harrah's Casino Ballroom. This waltz was featured at both.

This partner dance is done in a sweetheart position. It is nationally published in Country Dance Line Magazine, Step by Step, and many others. WE HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY IT!
