Brian is well liked by students and approaches all lessons with enthusiasm. He has an effervescent personality and a passion for dance, his manner immediately engaging the students’ interest. Brian uses his initiative readily and is very competent in managing groups of students and teaching dance to a class with a wide range of abilities and prior experience.
