“We really appreciated your Program! Step by step demonstration before the actual practice is excellent! Very good progression in the lesson. The level was adapted to the age of the students. The dance specialist was very interesting so there were no discipline problems. The dances and songs were varied. The vocabulary was adapted to French Immersion students. Thank you very much for this high quality workshop!”
