      TESTIMONIALS

      haven’t you heard?

      Some people measure “success” in a dance weekend by trophies & medals- but I prefer to count new dance friends & quality time with good people, with bonus points for embarrassingly snorty laugh fits.
      KAY
      Friendliest event I’ve attended yet. Thanks to all who greeted, smiled, and hugged (makes a big difference – even when you’ve been working for days and are exhausted – your effort was noticed)
      BONNY
      This was the Best Dance Event Ever. Great dancing. Phenomenal instructors. Thank you so much to everyone who worked so hard to put on this fabulous event. Fruit and pizza provided by the organizers was over the top generous.
