We had the best night on Saturday and it all started with Jeff and the others. They were great as they had everyone up dancing and we all enjoyed it!!!
Thanks again and enjoy your week.
Ok, so you are probably sick of getting thank you emails but really - WHAT A SHOW!
It was fabulous, you and your team were fabulous - the kids were fabulous!
Mine have come back raving and even my son piped up that he wanted to do it next term which is very unusual for him.
So - thank you so much for being an awesome teacher and flicking on a switch for a love of dancing for the kids - you are much loved by our group.
The certificates were great too.
Thanks a million from me and the other mums, Caragh.
First of all, the decision to put our daughter in your class has been a hugely beneficial. I understand she's been very full on in your class, but Phil says that you guys handle it really well. She's enthusiastic, regularly practicing her new moves at home and having the trophy this week - she has not failed to tell every person she comes into contact with about it - including strangers we pass on the street on the way to school. Its certainly lightened the mood a bit in her life, and I am soooo grateful.
