    Phillip is an amazing coach, passionate and dedicated artist, and a pleasure to be around. His attention to detail and striving for perfection is contagious. The classes he teaches are engaging, fun, and fit almost any genre. His choreographies are original and well-thought and he always picks the greatest music for it. I highly recommend taking one of his classes. Once you try it, you'll be hooked.

    Phillip is a caring and excellent teacher for people of all ages and abilities. He is very knowledgeable in dance technique but is able break it down in ways that are easy to understand for people who are new to dance. His classes are challenging in the best way and I've improved in areas I didn't think I could at my age.
