WHERE THE NAME CAME FROM: This dance was named for Dusty and Gloria's 4-month old granddaughter (Cheyenne Lenay Dancause) who was watching Grandma, kicking, grinning and gurgling in her little "bouncy seat" the entire time Gloria was writing the dance and practicing the steps in the living room. "Sweetpea" is Dusty's knickname for the munchkin who is now a teenager!
