Testimonials

“[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.”

“Thank you for the EXCELLENT workshops…Your teaching was clear & well paced. The material was challenging yet accessible – with all the concepts dovetailing with the private teaching we have received from [names of awesome teachers whose company I am beyond excited to be included in]. Being so friendly, personable and approachable just frosted the cake.”

“We were saying the other night that we love learning from you because you give direct, specific, and practical tips on how to improve! I feel like I have experienced tangible results immediately from your teachings.”

From a lead and follow

“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!”

“If you want to experience an excellent workshop, with challenging material for both follows and leads, and an amazing ability to provide something for people with all skill-levels in the room, look no further than Jennifer Barnett. A truly great two days have left me with tons to work on!”
