"I wanted to commend you on a fine collection of dances. My students here in Southwestern Virginia have loved learning the dances. They are easy to follow and provide a lot lot of enjoyment for the children of our community. Students ask every time they come to music class to dance another dance. Thank you for your book!  --E.
