    I took the 4-week burlesque class and had the best time! Stephanie is not only a talented and effective teacher but she is gifted in making people feel comfortable. I was hesitant to take the class because I am shy but she made me feel comfortable and confident and helped me explore a new side of my personality. Cannot recommend more highly.

    I am so happy I decided to take this class! I am completely hooked and already signed up for another class because of the great experience. We got to perform choreography to a whole song, thanks to the 4-part series. Stephanie is a fantastic instructor - she breaks things down into smaller segments and walks you through until everyone is comfortable. She's friendly, enthusiastic, and incredibly nice. I can't wait to do this again!

    I think Stephanie is awesome! I missed last week and thought I would be lost but she was great with asking questions and making sure I was on the same level as the others. Love this class!
