“Suzanna has taught my daughter Sofie for the last few years. I appreciate her attention to authenticity and detail. She has nurtured Sofie beyond the studio to seek out performance opportunities and competitions and empowered her with confidence.”
"You bring such a depth to the dance itself, and always bring the joy to audiences that make us want to learn this dance! As a coach , you are unlike any other, you focus on individual and give us the best suggestion of our own style and how to improv each song, and how to put our story into it. As a dancer, I admire you. As a student, I deeply appreciate you."

Contrary to popular belief, practice does not necessarily mean perfect. Repeating using incorrect form will actually reinforce bad performance habits.
