  • I love my Mix Tape dance class: the music and moves are fun and upbeat, just like our teacher Deb!  I love the fact that I’m getting exercise, while doing something that I love.

  • You’ve created such a safe and welcoming environment in Mix Tapes.  I’ve tried a lot of classes over the years, and you do a really amazing job of keeping the judgement and cliques at bay.  It really is a point of difference.  Thank you.  The Mix Tape end of term show was so much fun last week: both my boys put their rainbow shirts on the next day!
  • Joining the Burleigh Mix Tapes has given me a little more fun in my life.  Our dance instructor Deb is so positive and full of fun, her love for dancing really is infectious!  It’s nice to come to class every week and let loose!  Thank you to The Cassettes for giving us such a fun dance class to go to.

  • I love being able to let go, laugh and have fun while getting fit.  Deb provides a safe, fun and encouraging environment where you feel like you are a fantastic dancer, no matter what your level is.

  • What an absolute blast it was to join The Cassettes’ Mix Tape Crew!  It was my first time trying a dance class, and Deb made me feel so relaxed, free and confident!  What a great teacher (with great moves) and of course the best music that your body just naturally wants to dance to!  It’s been my favourite night of the week and I can’t wait until next term starts!
  • Thursday has become my favourite day of the week!  Burleigh Cassettes teacher Debi is just beautiful ~ her enthusiasm is infectious, from the warm ups to choreography, the classes go soo fast in a whirlwind of sequins, shimmies, 80’s classics and shiny happy faces.  We get to perform after the 8 week term in an awesome routine for family and friends (you don’t get to do that at aerobics) and opportunities to perform at the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony!  Looking forward to next term, and excited to find out what song the dance routine will be.
  • I just wet myself while having the best time I’ve had all year.

  • Today was so fun.  You are such a generous and engaging teacher.

  • Thanks for the great classes.  I can see there’s a good bit of preparation work that you put into them.  Don’t stop me now, I’m having a good time!
