As always when you are present, the party is always super! I enjoyed every minute of it: great music and great food, and the DJ was the best I have ever had the opportunity to dance to. Excellent selections of all types of dance music.
"I have taken dance lessons from all the major San Diego studios for several years. Not until I found Mary Manzella did I feel that it all came together, she gives so much more. Learning from Mary is like going to dance school, not steps and moves, but the real essence of dance that applies to all styles. And she communicates it with so much fun and enthusiasm that I'm always stimulated to learn more. Thank you, Mary!" –Rob Vessiny
"Mary is the most spectacular and best dance instructor that I've had, and I've have a multitude of instructors." –Enedina, Director, Educational Leadership
"The classes are such a great success because of a combination of 3 things: Mary's excellent promotional efforts; her friendly, bubbly, humorous personality; and her excellent teaching skills. That's why the classes are doing well."
"Mary, we are learning more from you than from any other instructor"
–Ivan (current student)
