Testimonials from Joan's line dancing students

Brenda at Niels in Sonoma"I took my first class with Joan on New Year's Eve afternoon in 2003 and never looked back. I found myself looking forward to every Monday and Friday night so I could go to dance class, and freeing up my schedule on those night so I wouldn't miss a class! I love all the different types of music we get to dance to, and the wonderful, friendly people to dance with. Joan's instruction helps everyone to understand the steps, and build their skills to progress to the next level of dance. Whether you are an absolute beginner or a practiced dancer, you will be dancing and enjoying yourself in no time." -- Brenda Shatto

"I have enjoyed line dancing with Joan so much! Her style of teaching makes it easy to put the steps together. We're always laughing while learning, which adds to the fun! I've seen how Joan makes everyone feel welcome and included. From beginners to those with lots of experience, she seems to be able to balance her teaching style so that everyone has a great time!" - Barbara Tobin

"Joan says that contemporary line dancing is the most fun you can have without a partner. She’s right. I expected country western music with a lot of basic back and forth stepping. Her classes are anything but that. From waltzes to tangos to hip hop - with some country western, too - the music and choreography are varied and range from soothingly simple to intricate and complicated. Great exercise for mind and body. Joan keeps everyone happy and moving from first timers to dancers who have been with her for years. I highly recommend joining her on the dance floor." -- Bill Saxon

"Joan Price is a consummate teacher! She brings dance in a way that allows each person to experience success. Though her large, enthusiastic group ranges from beginner to seasoned dancer, Joan manages to bring something for everyone. Most importantly, she builds a warm, positive social experience in her classes. People get to know and love each other. Newcomers are warmly welcomed and encouraged by the whole group." -- Laurie Tuchel

"Joan is such an enthusiastic and talented teacher. I love her classes! Line dancing with Joan in her classes has been such a pleasure. I used to feel too tired to venture out in the evening, but since I discovered line dancing, you can't keep me at home. I look forward to every class, enjoying the participation, the mental challenge of memorizing, the physical exercise, and the companionship of other dancers. Sometimes I feel as if I am flying across the floor. What a joy Joan has brought to so many!" -- Marsha Diane Arnold

Uta Martin"Not only do I enjoy the companionship, the excitement, the invigorating, inspiring, and enjoyable exercise for body and brain, but more than that, when I line dance, it becomes a magical time when all things seem possible. It helps me forget my limitations and takes away unwanted fear. I feel the joy of life. Being a participant rather than a spectator is to be alive. I love to line dance because it helps me lighten up and not take life so seriously. Yet on the other hand, there are places inside me where calm has never settled. Line dancing is loosening the knots of endless urging to find inner silence. There is contentment. It is a gift." -- Uta Martin

"I am really enjoying your classes! As a beginner I am feeling like I am relaxing more and learning more and more from your clear teaching and -- humor! Laughter is always a good thing and keeps it all in balance." -- Nancy Dempster

"I have been dancing for 60 of the 72 years of my life. Dancing has always been my first love, my first passion. From professional ballroom dancing to ballet, pointe, soft shoe, jazz, and tap, I enjoyed them all. About 18 months ago, the doctor told me that my knees were gone and the dancing days were over. It was then that a friend told me about Joan Price and her line dancing class. Joan's love for dance, her enthusiasm in the class, her commitment to her craft, her genuine caring for each student, her patience with those who need the extra help, all combine to make each class a wonderful, happy memory. Now that I am so limited in what I can do, she makes me feel so welcomed and loved that she is making my remaining dancing days pure joy." -- Joan Gatley
