I've really enjoyed this year and feel like my confidence is growing with the great experiences I've had so far.
I love the classes and feel that I've learned a lot thank you so much looking forward to next year. Thanks for everything.
We just wanted to thank you for helping us prepare a salsa routine for our wedding, which was already six months ago!
It was a great success and no-one really expected it and was very impressed, especially with Thurstan who really didn't know a lot of salsa beforehand, so lots of credit to you for getting us there!
My daugter really enjoyed last year and the concert at the end of the year gave her great confidence and enthusiasm to perform again some day. I think you do a fabulous job in your role and it was wonderful to see all the different groups on that hot hot day!
Many thanks for your lovely way with the children and everything she learned.
