Whilst teaching recently at Wendys Wildcatz charity event, I was asked by a lady called Rhonda Baker to choreograph a dance for her to Help Me Rhonda by The Beach Boys.
Well, I have and here it is! A PDF version is on our site and has been sent to all the usual places. We hope to shoot a video this week and when done will put out the link!
Hope you like it (hope Rhonda likes it!)
