Hi to the Forever Dance Team,
Having only recently arrived in Melbourne from sunny Brisvegas and keen to continue the dancing I had started, I checked out quite a number of studios in Melbourne before deciding where I was going to dance.
There are many great options in Melbourne, all with talented instructors and all offering similar opportunities in terms of medals, socials etc. However, what really stands out to me about Forever Dance is the friendly, relaxed, happy atmosphere you have captured in your studio and pass on to your customers. Even new friends I invited to the recent Medal Night commented on the atmosphere. I think the key is your instructors, who all for some reason seem to be happier and relaxed as a team, which is not something that is found in all studios. I am sure they have their ugly days too, like everyone in any job, but the general vibe is a happy one. So whatever you are doing, keep it up :)
I got a tip from a pro dancer who I stayed with briefly when I first arrived in Melbourne about Forever Dance and she was right. I still dance at other studios but somehow or other feel more intimidated by my startling lack of ability outside of Forever Dance! My FD instructor is pretty amazing and it shows in his students.
Forever Salsa rocks too. Now I just think you need to put a team together to showcase your studio and students at events like the Salsa Congress in Sydney :) You could be the 'dark horse' in this event and really surprise everyone......

Dear Chrisanthie and the Forever Dance Team,
Just to let you know, Wombat and I practiced each night of the week leading up to the wedding and we didn't miss a step (well maybe one) but I have to tell you, the reaction from our guests and even the staff at our reception was amazing - they were blown away by what you taught us.
From the initial lesson to the final one, we didn't stop laughing and having the time of our life, let alone the fun we had delivering "our masterpiece" to our friends and family. All at the same time ‚Äì you were extremely professional! (Pretty hard teaching a wombat and his double left footed fiance how to dance). And it only took 5 lessons!!!!
People were in shock and others had tears with joy, others just couldn't speak!!! Wombat and I really picked up when we did the first fling of our arm - the crowd hit the roof! With Woo Hoos and Wows coming bigger and better with each fling! And it went on getting better and better from there, to the point where they wanted an encore the day after at our post wedding BBQ!!!!!
We will never ever forget "our dance" and we have you to thank for making the boring old wedding waltz old news and the Cha Cha something amazing! It really was the highlight of everyone's day! Especially ours, we said you'd be very proud!!!!
I look forward to the day where we find our shoes again and come dancing! We loved it!
Take care and, once again, a massive thank you!

Dancing - The Forever Dance Way
When I first joined Forever Dance earlier this year, I managed to dance half the length of the floor before grinding to a halt, out of breath and fighting to get my heart under control. Thanks to my dancing lessons, I can now walk 5.5 kilometres in an hour. I feel healthier, stronger and I have energy and a zest for life that I didn't have a year ago. I also have new friends in Forever Dance who make me laugh, as well as being another source of fun and great entertainment!
I highly recommend dancing to anyone who is looking to get their health and interests back on track after years of nurturing children. And I highly recommend Forever Dance as the place to do it.
The teachers help you overcome all those hang-ups about being too big, too small, too old, too scared - whatever! They teach you a wide range of interesting fun dances that are both sassy and practical - so your dancing can shine anywhere without you looking like a show-off. They keep you mentally and physically stimulated with personal goals to work towards through medal tests and friendly competitions (if you want them!).
All in all, dancing would have to be one of the best ways to create a healthy body, a happy mind and new friendships filled with exciting possibilities! Do it. Do it now!
Dear Richard and George,
On behalf of the executive committee of the The Greek Siatista Club of Melbourne, we would like to thank you for your generous support in performing with your dance partners at our dinner dance held on November 3rd 2007.
Your performances on the evening helped make the function a big success and memorable to everyone who attended.
Theo Papagianopoulos, President.
I just wanted to write you a short note to thank you for your faith in me on Saturday night. I have to admit I wasn't entirely sure that I was ready but I still managed to get my Bronze Modern with a highly commended no less!!
I can't believe how far my dancing has come since I first started and it's all thanks to you! Who would have thought 2 medals now!
I may not be the best dancer (and I definitely struggle with the sexy stuff) but you always seem to bring out the best in me.
I have complete trust and faith in you and it's only due to your kind and supportive manner. You manage to make everyone feel special and thanks to you, dancing has become one of the most enjoyable parts of my life.
Anyway, enough of the soppy stuff - I am much more comfortable when we are giving each other a hard time.
Lots of love, Kerry
