"Attending Kasia’s High Heel Boot Camp was one of the best things I have ever done for my dance. Kasia is an amazing teacher and beautiful dancer. She is able to break down fundamental steps and presents in a way that makes so much sense. ."
"I just wanted to tell how much I enjoyed your High Heels Boot Camp. It was everything and more than I expected it to be. This was the best thing I could have done to give me that extra bit of confidence I needed."
Since I started taking dance lessons in November of 2008, I have had the privilege of receiving private coaching from Kasia Kozak during two of her visits to Birmingham, Alabama. On both occasions the instruction was top-notch and professional, and that, combined with much encouragement, made the experience invaluable to me. So when I was given the opportunity to attend Kasia’s “High Heel Boot Camp” I couldn’t resist. My expectations of Kasia were high because of what I already knew about her talent as a dancer and the quality of her teaching. But what I received during this intense and fun “High Heels Boot Camp” definitely surpassed my expectations! Over the course of 15 hours I discovered just how much dancing involves every part of your body working together, and the important role good fitness, confidence, balance, and your own personality play in the making of a quality dancer. You learn much about ballroom and latin dancing while at the same time you gain valuable life lessons. Kasia left nothing uncovered and was very organized in her approach. Not one minute was wasted. And our sore feet and bodies were evidence of that! What’s obvious to me is that Kasia puts her heart and soul into teaching. She brings her world class dance experience, her education, her whole life experience into the boot camp and we reap the benefits. You can’t help but get to know Kasia during such an intense three days where she is “in your face”, yet this was the bonus! She is smart, funny, poised, gracious, and of course, talented. But it’s clear her focus is not on her talent, but on the progress of each lady who attends her boot camp. She addresses our specific needs throughout the weekend - using relevant examples, offering practical tips - and she desires that we leave with a wealth of understanding, encouragement, and confidence in our ability to be strong dancers. This has certainly been true for me! I am grateful to know Kasia and grateful to her for this unforgettable experience!
