  • “I wanted to send a little note expressing my appreciation for the amazing job you did teaching me how to dance. I went to all the events for ORLX this past weekend and had some wonderful compliments about my dancing. The biggest one, that topped them all was when a lead said to me, "...your style of dancing is so authentic. It is how the old timers would say they used to dance." Thank you, thank you, thank you...for keeping true to the origin of the dance and passing that on to your students without corruption. It made me extra proud to say who my instructors were. Another lead I danced with was from JAX and attended your workshop there and after I told him who I learned from he said, "oh, yes of course! you are so lucky to have them in Orlando." I just beamed and agreed. What more can one say...keep up the good work seems trite, but it is heartfelt!”

  • “Some dance instructors are “stiff” and “structured” and teach in such an intimidating fashion – NOT Dawn and Rob! They work together beautifully to make dancing a fun, positive and rewarding experience. We’ve just signed up for your next Lindy Hop session! Thanks!”

  • “Rob and Dawn are amazing. The individual attention in their private lessons has helped me SO much. Dancing with Rob is a blast, and he knows just how much to push new concepts so that you learn fast but are not overwhelmed. Having Dawn there also to watch every step and give tips makes the whole experience so much better than it would be working with just one instructor! They both are great at instilling confidence while still maintaining the attention to detail that makes them great!”

  • “The group lessons are an awesome way to get to practice new moves with a lot of other dancers while still under Rob and Dawn's watchful eyes. Plus, then you know a lot of other people at your same ability level when you go to the Saturday night dances and can practice your moves with them there too! For me, the combination of private lessons and group lessons has been perfect. They are the best days of my week!”

  • “I wanted to compliment you guys on your dedication and skills as instructors. ... on Sunday I did have a break while waiting for Dawn and watched how each of you were instructing and I was impressed. Your love of the dance and dedication is obvious. ... For my own thanks, at every event I've gone to and danced Shag, Balboa, Lindy Hop (and the occassional Charleston) with others from around the world and I've always been thankful for what you guys taught. Most convincing (and testimony to your teaching) were the first times I travelled out of Florida and I danced with skilled follows from far away, and I was like - this stuff really does work all around the world!”

“After several years within the swing scene, Rob and Dawn are undoubtedly the reason why it is still alive in this area. They regularly provide solid instruction and sponsor nationally known dancers to do the same in Orlando. They also support live music by occasionally bringing in musicians to play at the regular dances. Rob and Dawn are kind, hospitable, and are the heart to the Orlando swing scene while ensuring their new and existing students' success in learning to swing dance.”
