“I see it as a wonderful new workshop amongst many in the world. It’s a gem,that not many people know about yet,so anyone who comes here gets to be a part of something really special. The teachers and the choreographers are fantastic and the students get to dance at a final Gala performance in this lovely Opera House. As a dancer,I would attend this valuable workshop.”
