...On behalf of everyone at Shimmy Shack, thank you! You added such a classy aspect to the evening. Your smiles and communication skills with the audience were so effortless, your choreographies were delightful and fascinating. Your authentic costuming, music, and moves made everyone happy. Comments are still coming in from my students and fans of the evening. ... I hope you will grace us again...

A wild, crazy, and sincere congratulations to the Origins Folkloric Dance Company on their fabulous full length show ...The costuming was fabulous, the set darling (cute DJ, too - nice fez!) but the dancing was a knockout. Folkloric put its best foot forward tonight, and I encourage dancers to see this troupe... It featured an incredible variety of folkloric styles from the Middle East and Northern Africa - seeing these dances helps us put our own “belly dance” tradition in a context and helps you feel the rhythms and movements so much more, as well as showing the dynamic social power of group dance.

I just loved your Mid-Eastern dance exhibit yesterday, and was blown away by the grace and magic of it all. Thank you so much...so much talent you all have...
