Testimonials

“This is my second Swing I and I'm taking Swing 2 right after. TIRED after 2 hours but I love it. I plan on taking Waltz next. You are a great organization, and wonderful teachers! I have a couple friends taking Swing I with me this time, both have taken other classes, and both think you are so much better than their previous experiences. I'm very glad I found you!” — Susan Larson

“Dear Lilli Ann,
We are both enjoying the classes. We have taken a few other dance classes in past years, and we appreciate the things we have received in our other classes, but there is no doubt in our minds that your classes are the best organized, best taught and most enjoyable we have experienced. Thanks.” — Scott Henrickson

“Lilli Ann and Claire are an enthusiastic and professional team. Their workshops have something for everybody — a clear introduction to the basics for the beginners, while at the same time challenging the more advanced dancers. Cross-step Waltz is a gorgeous dance, and they do a fabulous job of teaching it.” — Marion Newvelant, Random Waltz, Portland, OR.
