“Thank you Dando Dance, Olya Joseph and David Joseph for an amazing year. We cherish all that you teach in dance and the joy you bring into many aspects of our lives. For the first time ever Sajeev Kappukatt and I took our passion for living and each other into performing salsa and bachata with an amazing dance team. We danced at some of Calgary’s largest and best events. We loved growing and sharing through this dance season with the best team ever”

“Having entered the social salsa scene two years ago, I tried out for several different teams last fall. Ultimately it was such an easy decision because David Joseph and Olya Joseph welcomed me with open arms. Though Dando is such a fun team, we also work hard and under Olya and David’s training I’ve seen my technique greatly improve. I strongly recommend Dando for the dancer that wants to become stronger and who wants to have a great time. We really are a family!! I look forward to meeting our new friends this fall!!!”-Paige Costly S. via FB post aka proud dance mom- Rebecca S
