South Moon Under by John Anderson
NOTE: The title is rather meaningful. Gloria was teaching the dance she had just created hours before to some brave souls who came to dance class while a fierce Florida thunderstorm raged outside. Some dancers were trapped in their car for over an hour waiting for the blowing rain and lightning to stop. In addition, lightning hit a pole outside the club and blew one of the three transformers on that pole which in turn disrupted all the power to the club. The dance which was originally named Moonshine was renamed Stormin'.
