"I am so happy with my online workshop. I have to congratulate the person who took the time to design that course... it is excellent! I am having a lot of fun doing it. It is perfect for me and it helps a lot as a dancer and creative teacher for children."

"...the online class is very informative, helpful and accessible! The risk assessment section was especially helpful. I enjoyed the multiple people sharing what works for them as students, as well as the many teachers sharing their experiences and tips. Most of all, the unit dealing with designing and planning a class and exercises were the most helpful, since they presented options I would not otherwise think of. The online class is equally well suited, either as a precursor to in-person training or as a refresher after training, or even while teaching."
