My children, 11 and 13, had a lesson yesterday and they absolutely loved it. Joe, the instructor, was brilliant and both of them managed to stand up. Ben, the owner, was very understanding about moving lessons and all of my dealings with him were incredibly professional. We will be back for another installment. Thank you one and all.
