PS. Don’t forget, Susie teaches private lessons all the time! She is an Adjudicator and has a pretty good eye on what you need to succeed with your dancing. You just need to schedule yours today!  They are one hour, one-on-one, and you can learn anything you want. Often, people feel they move quicker in a private lesson and get the benefit of dancing with the instructor! Call to talk to Susie and she can give you her advise about what she feels you should be taking!
