"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."
