"Brooke brings an unusual number of strong qualities to her country
dance teaching. These include: her passion for dancing; her strong sense
of the dance, choreography, movement style and phrasing (she is a beautiful
dancer); her friendly (she is well-named) yet commanding personality;
her ability to convey directions concisely and clearly; and her creativity
and her sense of humor and whimsy. To add to that, she has a strong sense
of what makes for a good community, a crucial quality for country dance
leaders. She makes the learning experience fun and relaxing."
