Dear Renae and Jose,
I am totally thrilled with the Fundamentals of Fandangos! The course seemed easy at first....but has proved to be quite challenging! I’m loving every minute of it! The way you have shot the video for this class is wonderful! There’s no struggling to see details of the feet. etc.
