“This workshop material… has completely transformed my dancing. Billing it as a follow-focused workshop was misleading. For leads, it was a workshop on how to listen and playfully respond when a follow throws in rhythms and stylings — nothing worse than asking a top-tier follow to dance, bungling it the first time she does something cool, and then finishing out the last two minutes doing boring, vanilla, out-of-the-box moves. And I also learned plenty of cool moves and musical rhythms myself–the only difference is that they are now thoughtful, purposeful, and I know what they feel like when they are initiated by the follow, too. My two cents: If you want to be able to dance with advanced follows and give them a decent dance, this workshop is a must. Thank you!”

“[You] made me laugh at myself during the class… and that seems to have bled over into my general and social dancing. I care less about messing up and just go for things and get to laugh/smile when I don’t get the desired result. <<I know this wasn’t something covered, but however you ran your class, it had a very positive effect on me. Thank you again.”
