"This was a truly wonderful experience thanks to Vanessa and Jason's enthusiasm, knowledge of swing dancing, and ability to communicate effectively. They are also very effective and confident teachers. They are friendly, conscientious, engaging and punctual! Thanks to both of them for a great series of Thursdays and to Informal Classes for having them as instructors." - Lori M, spring 2018 student
