Listen to what people are saying!

“Thank you both for providing such an amazing assembly for our students last week! I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate you making modifications to the show and dances when we realized the location wouldn’t be as optimal as I had planned. I have received so many words of praise from our teachers and most importantly, our students. They all had a blast…..and they all want you back!!! So until next time then….”

“…thank you, again, for the awesome presentation/conference you put on for our State Conference. You were as incredible in person as you are on your videos… I will reiterate my comment at the conference, the videos, as excellent as they are, did not do you justice.”

“It was great to see you back on the road again. What you taught me as a teacher made many hundreds ol students learn to love dancing-and I am not a great dancer in any way!”

“Your videos and CD’s are simply fantastic and will help me immeasurably to continue our fun work at the Julliard School. With great thanks.”

“I should have sent this a week ago to tell you how WONDERFUL you were for our camp. You really set the tone for our best camp ever! We had our evaluation meeting, with the committee and leaders last Thursday, and everyone couldn’t stop talking about how great you were. The surveys the girls completed really told the tale. We had them rate the classes on a scale of 1-5. Nearly all gave you a 5 but, several wrote in a 10 and circled it. A bunch also wrote in very positive comments. They all want you back. I have heard, “You knocked it out of the park” and “Christy was by far the best keynote and assembly we have ever had.” I have had parents and community members request your contact information. I hope we will see more of you, when you get back to the northwest. I can’t thank you enough.”

Thank you for making Seafirst’s Weekend at the Couer d’ Alene Resort such a success. As always, there were early rumors going into the party that a few participants wouldn’t be caught dead dancing in front of their superiors. However, those feelings were quickly dispelled by your infectious energy and enthusiasm. Your easy and motivational teaching style left the tables empty and the dance floor bursting with happy energy.

“I have most of the Christy Lane Dance videos and love each and every one of them!! I had the opportunity to meet Christy briefly one year at a National PTA Convention and bought one of almost everything! I am an elementary teacher and high school dance team coach. My students love the videos too!”

“You have been a celebrity here for years and didn’t even know it! Our groups come from all over the US and they all seem to enjoy the dances you teach, so we would love to learn more. I have been teaching aerobics and group fitness classes since 1976 in the fitness business, along with working with all ages in Parks & Recreation for Knoxville and Pigeon Forge Tennessee, so that’s how we got your videos of line dance. I have a hugh library of instructor tapes/videos of all kinds of dance and exercise. You do a great job of teaching on the videos for even the non-dancer to catch on to. Thanks again and hope to meet you sometime in the future!”

“I wanted to e-mail you and tell you how impressed I was with your Dare to Dance products. I teach middle school PE at EastLake Middle School in Chula Vista, CA. After going to your training in San Diego recently, I was able to implement square dance and multicultural dance to my students for the first time. I felt very competent after taking your training. This was by far my favorite unit with the students (and their favorite too!!)”

“I have been a Health and PE teacher for 25 years, owner of a gymnastics school and NETA Certified Personal Trainer. Years ago you were the entertainment for a Pa. State HPER Convention at Seven Springs Resort and I thought you were the greatest. We had so much fun that night and it was your enthusiasm and professionalism that made all the difference.

I have purchased several of your products and have used them extensively over the years. I bought your Country Line Dancing Video and CD and Dance CD with all of the crazy fun dances that the kids love. I have also used them with Senior Citizens.”

Bobbie Jo Vucelich


Absolutely amazing! Even the most self-conscious attendee couldn’t resist. I was thrilled to see so many of our members involved. A lot of people really got to know each other that night because of this event. Let’s do it again next year!

“Potential customers should know how great your products are. I use the CD’s and DVD’s extensively in class and outside of class when community leaders ask me to provide activities and entertainment for various events. Thanks so much!”

On behalf of Marketing Specialists and our guests, we would like to thank you for your show at the Westin Mission Hills Resort. Your performance was outstanding and the crowd is still talking about your presentation. The energy and involvement that you initiated really helped put the “icing on the cake” at this event.

Your energy filled that ballroom with such joy. I can’t find the words to express how much we appreciate your role in making the AAHPERD National Convention a night to remember.

Just wanted to write a short note to let you know how much I love using the Square Dancing Today CD, I teach a skills and instruction class for recreational dance to physical education majors and minors at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I use your instructional CD’s to teach the dances to my students and they then have the skills and confidence necessary to go into the public schools and teach developmentally appropriate rhythmic movement including Square Dancing during their practicum teaching and intern teaching experiences. The verbal cues and instructions are excellent and easy to decipher and the music is up beat and interesting.

Thank you for providing great teaching tools to beginning physical educators and seasoned physical educators. Please keep up the good work!!
