Ray,
I can’t thank you enough for instilling a dream in us, and helping us make it a reality! Can’t wait for the Worlds!

- Matt

Thank you for thrice coaching me in the recent past as I advance to Silver status...you are a true master of not only the theory and technique of the dance, but also its history, which I find to be incredibly illuminating. You have a wonderful way of breaking down technique into easy to remember fundamentals, that have helped me enormously!

There isn’t another person I’d want on this “country island” to look to for the guidance required to get these ballroom students in tip top shape!
- Renee

Ray,
You are the epitome of the saying “patience is a virtue!” Thank you for the hours of insight, patience and expertise.

- Andrea



Thank you for your great teaching and support. You go beyond the call of duty.

- Jeanette



Thanks for being such an excellent coach, mentor and friend. You mean more to us than you know!

- Lisa and Chris


Dear Ray,
I greatly admire you not only as a dancer and my teacher, but also as a man of good character and integrity. I feel blessed to know such an extraordinary man as you.

Hi Ray,
The advice you gave me at the Workshop for my students was well received by them. Both of their frames are better and their whisk has improved. As a social dance teacher I teach the closed dance position but feel it would be good to teach the close dance position to my married couples who do standard ballroom which means I need to understand it better. I'm looking forward to your [next] workshop.

Ray is one of the greats! Loved his coaching sessions. Miss that smirk, accent, talent and kindness. Truly a chance of a lifetime to dance with him in lessons and learn from him.

- Monica



Everything is simple, nothing is easy.

Ray…
As you may know, we recently won the U.S. 10-Dance Championship. We just wanted to express our appreciation to you for having a hand in it all. We are happy about our success and are so grateful for your contribution to it.

I wanted to thank you for providing such a wonderful experience in Blackpool. This was certainly the most memorable experience of my dancing career.

- Lisa


Thanks so much, Ray! You have brought back my love for dance. You’re awesome!
