Comments from a participant:

I just wanted to drop a note and say thank you for a delightful week. Your performance on Saturday night was a treat, especially with the wonderful live music.

Several times in class over the past year, you've made the comment, "Ladies, you're dancers." This past week, I feel like I've transformed from someone who takes dance classes into a dancer. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.
