“Everything about the beginning ‘Bridge’ Waltz Class was excellent: the coherent and well-planned approach, more attention to follows than we are used to, and having both instructors watch and analyze what was happening and then step in to help. I liked that there was time for repetition, so things could settle into body memory — that’s hard to find as part of dance classes. I was so glad you didn’t try to teach more than a few moves, but instead focused on how to lead, follow, and connect — things that help in any dance. After all, connecting is the reason to dance with someone else, otherwise I’d just go dance alone!” —Amy H.

“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
