"Just wanted to put into writing how much your web site and soap box has meant to Deb & I
since we started dancing in 1999. We have found so many great dance venues..traveling far
and wide (instate and out of state ) with your listings..can't express how much it has meant
to us. Often at the end of my work day I like to read your back soap box rants, etc. it is
an enjoyable way to unwind after a day of work...and a great reminder of all we need to be
aware of on the social dance floor. Thank you so much." -

"I just wanted to say thank you for what you do on the Dancing In Canada website. I was quite
stunned you do all this (maintain the website manually) and you don't even live in Canada!
Also, I so enjoyed reading your FAQ and what to read before submitting.
You should get an inbox full of regular thanks, but you probably don't. So, thank you for what you
are doing for social dance in Canada."
- Nikki Heatherington, Jive Nation Toronto (02/12/10)
