"I just wanted to thank you again for such a lovely afternoon. I enjoyed every minute of the Women's Salsa Retreat! It flowed, it was never boring, and probably just the right amount of time. I usually end up working pretty much everyday. That was the first day I had off in forever. I thought I would treat myself to this retreat, because hey, I deserved it.....& I'm so glad I did !! I've been practicing ever since ;)"
