“Thank you for making our wedding so special.  We loved our dance
lessons with you and felt so comfortable when it came time to
dance our First Dance.  Thank you!

“My girlfriend was nervous at first when we showed up for her
surprise birthday dance lesson.   I admit I was nervous too
but thanks for making it the best birthday gift for both of us!”

“Sonny and Nancy, you were great!  My wife really believed me
that we were there to pick up a chicken for her birthday but was
much relieved she didn’t have to take it home.  
We loved the dance lesson!  We laughed all the

way home. 
Thanks again.  We’ll be back!”

(Note from Nancy:  Yes, we play along with folks when they’re planning
a special event and I thoroughly had her convinced that one of
our chickens was about to go home with her.  LO
