Testimonials
"Wendy added a dynamic and skill in leading the dancing at our wedding that was inclusive and made everyone comfortable (even people I could never have imagined dancing!). For example, an elderly neighbor who has NEVER danced at an event wouldn't leave the dance floor and cancelled plans to stay at our party. The dance is still being talked about and will be for years. Wendy's energy, warmth and smile are amazing." - Justine Veree Naiman

"Hey Wendy, you surely do know how to add to a party! Thank you so much for the joy and warmth that you brought to Jesse and Justine’s wedding. Thanks for your energy and exuberance - - you made the day!" Love and best wishes, Veree
