In my case I haven't posted a dance yet because I haven't gotten up the
nerve, but here goes. This is one of a collection of dances I'm working
on in praise of chocolate in all its various forms. The major reason
for choosing this theme is that several of my friends and I think the
publication party when we finally get it put together will be delicious
(admission = something chocolate).
If any of you have chocolate themed dances you would like to contribute,
send them along.
