** "Heather Walker is more than just a dance teacher. My daughter danced with Heather for 15 years, and she learned not only dance but self confidence, self expression, and so much more. The atmosphere was not that of rigid competition, that made a child feel less than perfect, but one of encouragement and how to enjoy dance. It was a truly pleasant experience. Heather was like a second mother to my daughter and that will stay with her for the rest of her life." Natalie, Chelsea's mom

**  "At 3 years old l started dancing but the studio where l was taking classes was not the right environment for me. It was a competition-driven studio, and unless you fit the ideal dancer sterotype, you were not invited to be a part of the competition classes and were treated with disrespect and ignorance. When l was 12, l came to Jaztabal and after my first few classes l knew my biggest regret was not coming here sooner. Being at Jaztabal made dancing FUN again. l ended up learning more from Miss Heather in a few short months then l learned at the other studio in years. With smaller classes, there was more one-on-one attention to develop skills. l was always challenged to push myself but managed to keep it fun. l developed more self-confidence. The Jaztabal staff became a second family to me.  Now as an adult, l'm still taking classes with Jaztabal and couldn't imagine taking classes anywhere else." Erica

**  l have been dancing at Jaztabal Dance since l was three years old.  l have learned so much more than just dance.  l have learned about friendship,family and confidence.  My life has been changed for the better.  They have always taught me to strive to do the very best that l can, and given me the courage to try."  Maria

**  "My training at Jaztabal was always fun. It gave me discipline and confidence, to excel in college. Now l pay it forward as an elementary teacher."  Rhonda Huddleston

**  "Our daughter hated dance at her lst studio. The impersonal boot camp approach frightened her. We love it at Jaztabal, each student is treated as an individual with respect and so are the parents." JoAnn D., Amy's mom

** "Our daughter, Amy has become much more confident and willing to take on new challenges thanks to the foundation she has gotten from "Miss" Heather." Elayne, Amy's mom

**  "l have been dancing at Jaztabal since l was 4 years old.  It has boosted my self esteem and has also let me express myself as a student of dance and as a person."  Jillian

**  "l have been dancing at Jaztabal for 14yrs, and l can honestly say that there is not a thing about the studio that l don't like.  l love taking class there.  "Miss" Heather has given me the greatest gift l could ever imagine, and that's the gift of dance.  l've learned so much and l know l would not be the person that l am today if l had never went there for dance class."   Gina
