Having a teacher with years of professional training and years of experience working in the professional dance field makes a huge difference that many parents do not realize or look for in finding a teacher. Casey performed a solo in competition this year that Curtis choreographed. It was truly wonderful and very original and the private instruction he provided really elevated her performance. She has improved in all aspects of her dancing and performing skills. She really looks forward to going to dance class and is very sad when they end each day! Curtis makes the classes fun and is able to teach them things that many other teachers cannot offer. I cannot say enough good things about Curtis as an instructor – the inspiration and compassion he provides are truly wonderful.
