Cassandra made it really easy for my wife and I to learn enough in two lessons to look alright during our first dance and to have fun. The lessons made a great gift, especially as Cassandra took the time - even for just two lessons - to hear what we wanted and customize her approach to our skillset and my wife's chosen song. Only hiccup was car trouble making one lesson a little late, but I wouldn't dock a star for something beyond her control. Also, Cassandra was working hard to squeeze us in relatively last-minute around her dance competitions, so we appreciated the flexibility. Really appreciated her welcoming and encouraging vibe!
