“Rebecca gave me very good technical advice on improving the basics. The very next day, I could feel a difference in how I danced. I also learned how to improve my self-awareness by looking in the mirror and watching videotape of myself dancing. I really like the videotape at the end. It was a great benefit in the lesson.” -Mark Bonicillo
