Quotes and Comments
“It was October 2005 when I first found out about you and the Whirl & Twirl. I have to tell you that many things changed since then. As a beginner dancer, I have managed to learn east coast swing along with lindy and charleston; I made new friends and plus made my 2nd & 4th Saturday nights much useful. I am grateful to you for all these. Well, I believe it is not only me; many others as well owe you bunch of thanks for your efforts to keep the Swing scene alive...”
