“Thank you [Play Now Education] for such an excellent program yesterday! Brock was incredible and ALL the students and staff loved his energy. Having Brock bring his enthusiasm and passion into the gym to teach DANCEPL3Y, it gave not only our girls but all of our boys the courage and confidence to be themselves and have FUN while dancing! I would love to have Brock come back to us next year. I will also highly recommend this program and the instructor Brock to all of my fellow P.E. contacts and teachers. Thank you Brock for teaching our students to BE the fun and to be confident in themselves!”
