Your haflas are always the best attended.  I think it's your relaxed approach to it all that makes them such fun, and the people are all so nice and friendly.  Again many thanks, I know you probably put in hours getting it all together but it was worth it.

Luisa Taylor


Thank you for such a delightful hafla and workshop. I especially enjoyed the Chorus Line routine. Tony had me in stitches and it was wonderful to see you dance at such close quarters as you are absolutely captivating! You and Tony make for an incredibly entertaining team.

Many thanks for a wonderful time.

Lots of love,

"Hi Yasmin,
I am writing to say how much I enjoyed your scarf gypsy choreography at Majma 2008.  I also really enjoyed the live violin playing - I am used to a live drum but the violin was completely new to me and it was great.
Many thanks,"
Jane Coello

"Dear Yasmin and Tony,
Just a quick note to thank you for such a lovely and exciting workshop Yasmin, and for being such a great support Tony! Everyone I spoke to had glowing comments about how good the workshops were and how lovely a person you were … facts which I had been shouting from the rooftops for months! We are looking forward to your return visit in the New Year."
