  • Why are Justin and Linda such a great partnership?

  • The short answer is BALANCE.

    Ms. Linda likes to research, and Justin likes to shmooze. After a long week, Justin unwinds with his group of close friends, and Ms. Linda would rather talk to her journal. Ms. Linda and Justin make a great partnership because they know themselves. They know each other. And they know how to laugh at their quirks. Sure, collaboration is not always cakes and roses, but we know that the hard work we do together behind the scenes makes a better dance experience for you and your family!!
