Your Chicagoland Dance Instructors
“We love you, miss you and dancing is just more fun because you are our teacher!! You’re the best! Love having all these videos! Keep them coming! Thank you for all you do for us, you are the BEST!!”
“Thanks for the dance lesson! It was a lot of fun and you are really an excellent instructor!!”
“I don’t know where you came from, but I am VERY glad you are here! You are so talented and make dancing even more fun than it already is. Thanks. You are an awesome dancer and instructor!”
“I LOVE our teacher Janet Kruse. She ROCKS !!!!!!”
“Janet does a great job of teaching to a group with a wide range of talents.
Makes it fun and keeps everyone focused. Go ahead and give it a try!”
“Thank you, Jan, for everything you taught me! I am making do with what northwestern Arkansas has to offer for line dancing, which isn’t much, but it wouldn’t be the same if I hadn’t learned from you! If I hadn’t taken your class, I honestly don’t think I’d even be dancing today! THANK YOU!!!”
“You are such a good teacher and kind soul. A BIG thank you for teaching us. It’s obvious that you love dancing and have a passion to share it with others. Not everyone with skill, talent, and years of experience, however, has the ability to successfully guide novices. You are compassionate and encouraging, affirming and tactful, devoted and generous with your time, and you do not reveal a loss of patience or hope. This is why we have great appreciation for what you do. There are other lessons to learn on the dance floor besides the dancing, which makes it even more interesting relationally.”
“Thank you so much for making it so much fun. I am so happy to have found a place where I can go line-dancing and not have to have a “date” or go to a bar! I look forward to the new session!”
“You have changed my life – – for the very good! We are going to dance more than ever this year – thanks to you and all your line-dancing friends…”
