Valonda as a Washington Redskins Cheerleader
"Having gained weight I was very unsure of going back to dance classes. Valonda assured me the adult classes were catered to every level and each dancer works at their own pace. Joining the Adult Jazz class was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. In the past year, I have lost weight, gained flexibility I had lost and ultimately fallen back in love with dancing."
