Audree Hutchinson - WCCL Full Year Training Program
"Our daughter was ready to quit dance last summer. She was no longer enjoying it and no longer felt passionate about dance. We
insisted she take a class with WCCL. She had such a great time! I had a heck of a
time trying to bring that spark back! But after spending 2 hours with you...it
changed her completely."
Parent - WCCL Summer Intensive
"Natasha has grown as a dancer under your guidance - and in such a short time! Her dance teachers have noticed the change in her - more confidence especially in improvisation, understanding the music
and putting it into emotion."

"Danielle Gardner is like no other in this world. Her patience, kindness, ability and creativity are unparalleled. She has changed my daughter's life for the better and is the most incredible role model for young girls. We will hold her close now and always. She can see into Ry's heart and mind and always see's her best side, we look forward to the future and seeing her continue to develop her potential."
