"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, Former Acting Director, Dance Division, Stanford University


"Mary's class is tough in that good way that we dancers love. Taking her class will challenge your brain and your body and make you a better dancer."   - Amy Foley, Artistic Director, Bellwether Dance


"Awesome full body warm-up, fun combinations, and a nurturing environment all set to great music. What more could you ask for?"   - Crystaldawn Bell, Teaching Artist and Dancer
