  • I just love The Cassettes dance classes.  They are part self-help; part dance; part entertainment.  A complete mind, body and soul experience that has me laughing the whole way through!

  • Thanks again for the workshop.  My girl gang are all mad about you now.  Marissa you are SO GOOD at what you do!

  • I’m so happy to have found The Cassettes, and can’t wait to have more fun on the dance floor this Tuesday.  I start smiling as soon as I think about the class!!

  • I LOVE my job!

  • 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!

    An inkling of who we are

    When we arrive on earth, we are provided with no map for our life journey.  Only gradually as our identity forms, and we get an inkling of who we are, do possibilities begin to emerge that really call us. – John O’Donohue I was 19 years old and gazing down the hallway into a square…
