“The knowledgeable, warm and steady grip of the director and choreographer led the group’s goal, which was approached with long-term co-operation with months of discipline and commitment. The creativity, the memory, the ability to throw away, the talent of the performers and the great collaboration based on trust and confidence were touching and awakening. “

“Right away, both of them (mentions the names) you get a really good feeling that they clearly know what they are doing and they have a lot of experience. In a way, both of them take you in, I knew right away that I was taken seriously. As soon as you are feeling tingly, you are doing something pretty cool, which I haven´t felt before. Skillful, talented, really nice, awesome amount of information and experience. Attitudes with both are extremely on point, but they do not create an atmosphere that is negative or condocending. It’s good. The group expects a lot from the tutors and they also give it . They will fulfill the given expectations. “(H2)
