Julee, the show was amazing. So well coordinated and professional. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be a part of it! You’re an amazing performer and your joy for dancing really showed through in everything! I was very impressed.

I wanted to give a huge kudos to Bob. I had such a great time working with him. He helped me a lot with my dancing (helped me finally get my swing out) and made the whole experience so fun! He is an amazing dancer and I was very grateful to partner with him.
