TESTIMONIES

Feb 2019 Marie’s  Lindy Hop dances and lessons are in the “BEST” category.  She is amazing. You will learn the basic 8 count swing-out  (Real Lindy) in short order at the first event you attend & that is a rare find in this city.  Marie is very friendly, competent and experienced.  Her dedication to her students is extraordinary.  Great place to learn & practice Lindy swing. FROM: Byron Starr, accomplished Fusion Dancer, Founder/Operator of the Sea To Sky Swing Dance Conventions + the Dance For Fun Club. 

2020 I love music and love dancing. This dance class was in a relaxed atmosphere that learning was very much supported.  You, all made the dance class fun and enjoyable, so as we all could learn the steps at each of our pace. You always gave encouragement and inspiration to be become better at the dance. Thank you for that! Had such a great time. A great class to learn how to swing dance. (: Cindy Vanderbyl
