“I found that (Anna) engenders a completely unintimidating, social environment …the class I attended had a good wide range of participants, even a man, .. I've never been to such a giggly class! There is no pressure to be good or even right, making it easy to pick up the cool moves and the ginchy vibe …My experience of this dance class is that it's like being invited to a high-enegry party, at which you'll be taken care of by the hostess with the mostest! …Anna expresses a desire to "amass a go-go army" and by the end of the class I believed she could!” - Lola McMillan, Melbourne Stage Online
