"Hello Leslie,

I can't praise your band and caller highly enough. You brought so much joy to both the kids and the adults who rediscovered their inner child whilst gleefully dancing, stamping and clapping. Thanks for your patience - I feel what we lacked in coordination we made up in enthusiasm and you were all very encouraging. It was a wonderful night and you helped to create so many happy memories. Fantastic music and a great caller - what more could you ask for!
