Here's what others have to say about Joan:

I want you to know that my dance partner and I had an absolutely marvelous time in your workshop this weekend! This will go down as one of those WOW events in our lives :)
Berea Waltz Weekend. 2012

Thank you, again, for a wonderful weekend. We have received nothing but positive and enthusiastic comments about you, specifically, and the weekend in general.
Berea Waltz Weekend organizer, 2012

You encourage people to relate in a positive way, which invites the personal growth which can be the best part of learning, if not its main purpose.
College of San Mateo, 2012

I want to thank you for the delightful, well-taught, well-prepared lessons at Newport. I really enjoyed your demo of the Half and Half. Again, thanks for the great teaching and choreography. You are one of the top five dance teachers I have ever studied with.
