Words from our students:

“Dancing with Rowdy is like living a dream - he makes you feel like you can float and fly, invisibly putting you where you need to be and fixing things even if you insist on going somewhere else. Then, when you are ready to learn to dance properly, he can guide you through the infinitely many next levels, figuring out what you are doing wrong and how to fix it, and choreographing to highlight your strengths and hide weaknesses. And if you are a leader, he can show you how to make your followers feel like you, too, are a magician.”
