“I took Kathy’s class for close to 2 years and she is one of the best dance instructors I have ever had. I feel I am much better dancer because of her and she is one of the reasons I still dance.  She cares deeply about her students to learn the moves correctly and to have good foundation and at the same time her class is lots of fun.
