Some  Quotes from Children and Teachers

We  have included below some comments from some of the children who have attended  our workshops, and from their teachers. We have reproduced them exactly  as they came to us, with innovative and effective spelling and grammar!  However, in some cases it is what is said between the lines that is  telling: the dancing brought different things to different people, be  it parental recognition, breaking down of prejudices about dance, opening  doors for potential career choices, or simply downright fun.
