"Learning to swing dance was a great life decision-not only has it turned into a source for entertainment, but it has been great exercise and has provided fantastic social opportunities-and it was the Dance It! program that made this possible."

"Learning to swing and salsa at school was so much fun. The Dance It! teachers are professional and energetic. Now that I've learned the basics I feel confident going out to dance in Seattle and want to learn more."
