"Crystal you have been my teacher for 3 years now and i can honestly say out of many teachers I've had you are by far the best and I'm not just saying that.
Your so beautiful yet so kind, i feel like you support me as a friend yet also a teacher and a leader. Your talent astounds me and i can honestly can say every lesson i have with you, i learn a years worth of stuff . You are dedicated and loyal and i believe as long as i live you'll always be up there with with the greatest and kindest teachers I've had. You inspire me to work hard and wining Blackpool 2013 will always remain a highlight of my life."

"Crystal and I competed together in the U21 category. In the time we danced together Crystal was a dedicated, passionate and extremely had working partner. I achieved the greatest results and performances of my career with Crystal, who was and is a brilliant dancer, but someone who brought the best out of me and made it a joy to rehearse, train and compete with. Crystal was the best dancer i had the privilege of dancing with, and remains a great dancer, a great teacher, but also a great friend."

Crystal has been my dance teacher for the past 4 years. She has since helped me grow not only in danceability but in confidence too. Her professional approach to teaching is one i have the upmost respect for and her presence on the dance floor and off of it helps me to be the person and dancer that i want to be. Seeing her on stage whilst performing is both inspiring and captivating. Crystal isn't just a dance teacher - she's an inspiration and a friend.

Well where do I start, perhaps the beginning? Crystal has been my teacher about 7 years now and I don't want that to stop. I don't doubt that she is the best teacher around to be quite honest, but she is also the most lovely person I think I will ever have the pleasure in meeting. How you manage to put with me I don't know ;) But honestly this women is the most amazing person I know. The thing is she isn't just a great teacher, she's also a role model to anyone. I know that she'll always tell me right from wrong whether it's to do with dancing or not. When you have crystal as a teacher you also kinda get her as a friend ;) We've shared some funny times- like Blackpool two years ago, oh my I don't think I have ever seen someone so funny haha! Or last weekend when we won that Jive haha. The reason I love to dance with crystal so much is because we always have a laugh, no matter what, once we hit the floor it's just good times. I do love this dedicated women to bits and to be honest I am a bit gutted that her time is becoming more and more valuable as more people start to recognise her for her talents in both teaching and dancing. I hope to have you as a teacher for many years to come :)

"As a parent of 3 boys who danced, one of whom still competes overseas as an adult, (and the other two still love to dance when they can) i can truly say that Crystal was an inspiration. They loved having lessons with her and thoroughly enjoyed dancing with her. From my point of view Crystal was very easy to work with and always went that extra mile! i love watching her lessons and we all love watching her dance!"

"Everything you've helped the girls achieve and the All Girl confidence, from a parents point of view it is so reassuring to have you as their teacher. The interest and help you have given is 2nd to none. The direction you continue to give and to top that watching you on stage brings a lump to your throat! Awesome! xx"
