"Mary is that rare teacher who helps dancers build a solid and expressive technique through a clear articulation and progression of foundational movement principles. And her attitude towards students is genuine, generous, supportive of their growth as people and performers. If you want to change and grow as a dancer, I highly respect and recommend this class."   - Diane Frank, Acting Director, Dance Division, Stanford University
