Testimonials about the Arias'
Instructional Dance Videos
Dear Jamie and Gail:
My husband and I just finished learning
from your West Coast Swing Beginner
I video and are getting ready to start on Beginner II. Today I ordered
two intermediate tapes.
I just wanted to write to you to
say that we are both impressed and
delighted with your teaching style and clarity, not to mention your
beautiful dancing. We learned all eight 6 count patterns in a short
of time and a minimum of replay! We have previously purchased other
instruction tapes that were adequate, but after seeing yours we will
only your tapes from now on! Thank you! I would love to meet you one
if you ever come to North Florida! You have another fan!
Hello Jamie & Gail
Just thought I would drop you a note and tell you how impressed I was
in the speed in which I received my West Coast Swing video tapes.
I stopped by my townhome a few hours ago and
they were there. It is obvious that customer service is important to
and I would like to commend you. Thanks
Dear Jamie and Gail,
As a student of yours , it gives me great pleasure..(and i think i speak
for all those who may not have the time or whatever)....to congratulate
you for being honored in the Swing Dance Hall of Fame......i can't think
of anyone else who deserves that better than you.... ...I'am so happy
for both of you.
God Bless and keep you both always,
Your most Faithful Student

Aloha from Kauai,
This is just a quick note to thank
you both for sharing your knowledge and talent this past weekend.
Meeting the two of you was a real treat and I am richer for it. You
will always be welcome at my camp fire
wherever that might be and I wish you every continued success in the
I will be contacting you soon regarding my own web site needs and, I'm
sure, with dance questions,
but I wanted to get this note of thanks off to you without delay.
Take great care of yourselves and let's keep in touch.

Dear Gail and Jamie,
I want to take this opportunity
to thank you for being such great role models and teachers. You two
are the best dance teachers and dancers that I have ever had the priveledge
to work with. Your professionalism
on and off the dance floor is unwavering, always consistent. I felt
so honored when you invited me to join the
"Rhythm Rockers" dance team. Thanks to you I know how to West
Coast Swing, Lindy, Salsa, Cha Cha, Hustle,
Tango, Waltz, and also perform aerials. This has been the most fun I
have ever had. You are both so creative and
Thanks again from your biggest fan.

Dear Jamie and Gail,
We first found out about you on
the world wide web and ordered ALL your video tapes. We are dance teachers
here in Italy. Wanted to thank you so much for your clear and concise
teaching method. It is obvious that you are both well educated
and experienced teachers. You are both also quite pleasing to the eyes.
Very attractive couple. Keep us informed of your upcoming
tapes as we will certainly order more.
Hi Gail and Jamie,
Just wanted to let you know that
the dance videos not only showed me how to dance but I really like the
way you two interract
with eachother on the teaching tapes. My husband even got inspired and
is now dancing with me. We have been married fifteen
years and he never wanted to dance. But after seeing Jamie twirl Gail
around and look so....masculine doing it, he said he wanted
to learn! I was so shocked and happy. This has been the best year of
our entire married life!
Thanks so much, you have no idea how much dancing has helped our marriage.
Dear Arias Dance
Wanted to thank you for not only
being great teachers but also for inspiring me to lose 25 lbs.
There's so much more that comes with learning to dance that is hard
to put into words.
But I will try... After my divorce I gained 25 lbs and just did not
feel good about myself. Joining
a gym didn't work because it was so boring and working out alone is
not too fun. When I ordered
your videos online in hopes of learning to dance to 'meet someone,'
I had no idea what great excercise
it was. I have taken off 25 lbs. in five months and have kept it off.
Dancing is fun but great excercise too.
When I saw how great Gail looks, I did get inspired. Now I can wear
all the cute outfits and am going out
dancing three times per week. I have so many men asking me out on dates....even
at my age!!!!
You have no idea how happy I am.
Thanks you two!
