"A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others." - Author Unknown

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." - William Arthur Ward

"I can not help but to smile when I first watch a student who has learned the necessary coordination that keeps a beat going -- a groove that will move people to dance. That is totally rewarding!! It's about finding the best path in assisting the student to maximum growth." - Dan
