"Tashina, you’re lesson on Sunday BOOM! SUPER SONIC BOOM! When you said dance the CONNECTION and not the steps, it clicked. I went to the Sunday night dance and I kept repeating those words, and guess what! I danced the best I ever danced! You improved my dancing with those words!!! Filling the space or connection is one thing, but put in your words – DANCE THE CONNECTION, made so much more sense to me. THANK YOU!"
"Tashina, you made this event so bright and memorable too! My biggest impression of the weekend is Your dances at Inspirational JnJ and Strictly. (Which made people stand up and clap). My hands down for your amazing hip hop solo class , now I believe in myself more) And huge Gratitude for you both with Pj Turner for creating masterpiece group routine for us (it was blessing time for me , because of you two!)"
"PJ and Tashina thank you for all the lessons learned in the classes and Tashina thanks for the private lesson on Saturday afternoon. I was amazed at how kind and engaging you were. My dance experience is ballroom, swing and country 2-step and I never saw visiting instructors stay mingle and dance with the students during the dance. Thanks again and my goal is to be a great lead that others will enjoy dancing with."
"Thanks for the great workshops….. oscillating at my desk! Hope you’re back up here soon."
"Thank you. I feel the need to send you both props for always responding promptly and being just a delight to work with."
"Tashina, you reminded and taught me the reason why I love this dance. I truly enjoyed your lesson and our talk at Ladies Night!! Thank you!!"
"Getting knowledge from outside of Germany as Europe? I think it is a good to do so when you want to improve your teaching abilities. And definitely worth it when you got those TWO!! When I saw them at the UK Champ 2016, I simply wanted them to be my mentors! They are amazing dancers AND they are amazing teachers! No matter how busy they are, they will find the time for you: to explain it all properly! They adapt to your learning speed and give you useful tips. I spend half a year learning from then, and still do! They even play Good Cop and Bad Cop, and train you to be prepared for all scenarios and be ready when you won’t expect to have to. And even when you think they got nothing to add no more, believe me they do. As the BIM Class- you never stop learning!! Already looking forward to see them again. Definitely part of my TOP favorite teachers!"
"Tashina: thank you so much for the private lesson on Saturday, it was very insightful. I am going to be working on my basics. Also, thank you for the great workshops"
"Wow ! I am still surfing the wave of the Sea Sun Swing. You brought so much in this event, inspiration, skills, resources, admiration, dreams, star dust !!! For me who come from Tahiti where we are a very small community of WCS it was a really great gift to have you in class and in social dance. A gift for my dance soul. I remember in the classes the regain of energy when, before changing leader, when clapped “five” and claimed “woot woot”!!! This will stay in my mind. And also when Tashina you sayed to us followers, that you were there to be “our source of inspiration” in our dance ! And the two dances with you PJ. Wow! So thank you so much, it was so awesome, thank you!"
"Thank YOU two!! I finally feel like I’ve broken through a year-long plateau in my dancing, and much because of your one-on-one instruction along with your incredibly informative workshops 🙂 I was talking with another Denver dancer and she said, “They’re both just such good people”. And that goes a long way to support all that you’re doing. Thank you both for being such quality humans, for taking the time to master your craft, and for sharing it so inspiringly and hilariously with all of us."
"I`m your fan [🙂] This is not just words, I`m really fan – in the best and beautiful meaning. I admire you so sincere ! You show me how the person can create itself as a great dancer. I saw and see now how you grow up and how you develop everything in yourself – step by step. You inspire me so much ! I love learning from you. When I don`t have power or motivation I watch your video and everything comes. But moreover I think you are very good person. For me very good teacher should be a good person – with open heart, great personality. You are such person."
"I cannot recommend this to people enough! <3 As well as being wonderful dancers, PJ & Tashina are amazing teachers, giving clear, concise advise & supporting you every step of the way. The personal critique videos & the online coaching sessions have helped my dancing so much in such a short time. It's excellent value for money & I shall definitely be signing up again. I've also enjoyed the group aspect; getting to know other dancers from around the world, having their support & being able to support them. Thank you, PJT, it's been an absolute blast 🙂!
"I can’t thank you enough for being so professional and answer my questions so fast…. and are amazing dancers and teachers. So I’m really glad to know you and have you at my event."
"thank you Tashina and PJ for your coaching, your love and your effort - I'm really happy I could have been part of this first BOOM! focus group - feeling thankful
"You guys are the highlight!!! I could sit in your classes for as long as you could teach them. Your energy, passion, styles and BOOMS!! made my weekend! THANK YOU for coming to play with us. Next time we will be better prepared and make sure you never leave!! Haha!! Much love for you both xoxo"
"Thanks a million and a half times for your teaching this weekend. You were the major highlight for me and gave me the tools to completely revolutionize my dancing. You were a joy to learn from and I look forward to seeing you both at Swingtacular <3<3"
"Tashina- since my private lesson with you I am just starting to understand this "shoulder stability". I finally like my "posture". You mad a huge difference in my dance and just every day, all day long! That was a most amazing private lesson! I really love the lines possible!! You made SUCH a difference for me with posture. Sooo appreciated!"
"Hi Tashina. Thanks again for the lesson tonight, especially on such short notice. I've rarely felt like I've left a lesson with a clear understanding of the material taught, why it mattered, and ways to implement the changes addressed...so thank you for your patience and the ability to recognize and verbalize some really great things in my dancing. Safe Travels!"
