"Vanessa's Ballroom and Latin class for adults fast became and has remained the highlight of our week. Vanessa is one of the most naturally gifted teachers we have ever met. Even the most basic dance step was unknown to us when we started, but 3 years down the line we can hit the floor in 8 dances and have so much fun with all our new found friends!"
