“Your class helped me with small details that I hadn’t picked up on myself. You helped the dance suit my body, my style of dance, and the music. You really helped me with my performance skills, including eye line and musicality. I was also taught how to further connect and engage with the audience. You picked up on any awkward movements and made them look presentable. Overall really benefited all of my dances!” Alina

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help at the audition in Sydney and at the workshop in the week leading up to it.Having you there was a big relief and help ease quite a few nerves!   I’m sure i only made the top 10 because of your input and persisting so again thanks heaps for that!
Well that’s all for now, i just wanted to let you know how much i appreciated all you did for me.”
“I wanted to thankyou so much for that workshop, I am a showgirl in the finale of my
french show, and it is so great to know how to walk and stand, especially
as i am in a g-string and huge head piece! (although, when i am just standing
in one spot, what is the best postion for arms if they have to be down…
demi-bra????) anyway, I have really been thinking about your advice and I
have been very conscious of being careful with my body, both when i am dancing
and with my figure!”
“I have great news. I’M OFF TO FRANCE! I’m going to be working in Strassbourge? Not quite sure what it is at this stage. Thank for all of your help.The showgirls academy was the best thing i could have done, it helped me get my first foot through the door to my dancing career.”
“How are you? How are the showgirl workshops going? I bet they are going unreal cause I know I really enjoyed that week with you, I learned so much, and every french show that I do each week when I become a showgirl for the finale, I think of all the points that you taught me!”
“How are you? I hope you are well. I am just writing to thank you for all of things you have taught me through showgirl academy. I have appreciated it very much and it was great help in my audition for moulin rouge!  I was successful in my audition and got all the way to the end!!!”
