"Taking the workshop really put me in the right frame of mind to have some nice, connected dances later." — Galen, 2016
"Improving our embrace allowed us greater freedom of movement in a much more relaxed environment, which allowed us to enjoy our dancing so much more." — Joe & Diana, 2016
"The benefits of your class are still paying off for me. I’ve been focusing more on my embrace and keeping my dancing simpler so I can maintain my embrace and it really paid off at the Verve, La Garua, and at a private practica I had today.” — Rich, 2016
"This class helped me slow down and realize the [lead] can wait on me. Much better connection after this class!" — Julie, 2012
“I appreciate your ability to connect dancers both on and off the dance floor. You create an environment that is relaxed and inviting [and] I’ve easily connected with others at your classes... Thank you for facilitating connection on all levels!” — Traci, 2013
