“I must say I am a big fan of the streaming singles. Having them with me on my phone, makes it easy to dance when I have a few spare minutes. Since they are short in length, I am able to really focus on the few key points that are presented. After working through the three Foot Strength videos, I was surprised to find I was turning better at my next class. The Temps lie & Cambré Dance at Home video is so calm and nice and reminds me of those basic principles of proper form that can help my dancing look nicer as well. Thanks!”

—Leslie Miller, Adult Student

“I find these videos incredibly helpful. Recently I was unable to attend your class and was delighted to know that I had the option of maintaining consistency by viewing and practicing with these videos at home. The format provides me with the tools I need to learn/practice with clear instructions. The beautiful artistic as well as technical demonstrations by the dancers are also a much-appreciated feature. Thank you!”

— Wendy Williams McDonnell.
