Kendraaaaaa!! Thanks for killing my body like that! LOL I sooo needed that class. It was amazing. Can't wait for the next one! You are awesome!
I had not trained in awhile and we were told to pick a focus point for our training. I decided I would focus on cleanliness and intensity. Thank you so much Kendra for pushing us!!! I have so much more to work on as a growing dancer but now I can focus on new challenges within my training.
I am so thankful to have you as my dance teacher. You've truly taught me a lot, even outside of the dance world. I appreciate all you have done for me.
