“Thank you, thank you for creating, coordinating, inspiring and so gracefully and lovingly orchestrating this fabulous, wonderful ball of energy and amazement... The combination of artists and exposure has been delightful... almost as if you were thinking of her when you arranged it all! You and Matthew produce an extraordinary product unparalleled in the realm of summer camp activities in Las Vegas.”
“His confidence has soared since being a part of the intensive. He relates his experiences at the intensive all the time. We saw the Jabbawockeez and the first thing out of his mouth was, "Tal and Ricky taught me how to do that!". I believe you've really influenced him in the best way. Thank you Naomi and Matthew - the impact you had on these kid's lives has been seriously life-changing for them.”
“The program from the first day has had him energized and excited to perform at his best. The company of instructors is creating an experience and life-long memories that all of the kids will treasure their entire lives. Thank you for your dedication to ensure their success, the program was truly AMAZING!”
