Hi Bridget, Many thanks for such a fun yet impactful class yesterday – the 80’s music was a treat! I always hear people talking after class about what a great teacher you are – and I agree! The fact that the Saturday class is always filled, that people of all ages attend and that so many people keep coming back is a testament to your ability to observe, assess, keep it meaningful and demonstrate that you care. Living in the city is very stressful and it’s great that at least I have someplace to go every Saturday where I can “breathe”!
