"We're still amazed Cathy knew every student’s name upon arrival. Additionally, she offered suggestions and insights to each couple to personalize the experience. Although the sessions were large groups, Cathy made it feel like a private lesson where you could get all of your questions answered. The lodging and quality of the food exceeded our expectations; it was very upscale. The chefs were extremely accommodating with special diet requests. We were very impressed with the dance floor, as it was the nicest one we have ever danced on and were eager to return. The couples’ retreat is extremely well-organized and well-paced. You’ll never forget your first time . . . we had looked forward to the Couples’ Retreat for several years before we were finally able to attend . . . and it will be the first thing we put on our calendar. Everyone we met was so friendly; Cathy attracts the nicest couples to this retreat. We have made new friends with whom we get together with. This is the ultimate romantic winter weekend escape!"

"We've been dancing for a number of years, and recently began attending Cathy's Couples' Retreat. Attendees bring a wide range of experience. One thing that immediately stood out for us was Cathy's ability to reach all participants, regardless of their background. Whether novice or silver level dancer, Cathy tailors her instruction so that she is able to reach everyone. In the midst of a group setting that is a unique skill set."

“Every year, we’ve been to Cathy’s retreat and honestly can’t wait until the next one. We make new friends who have the same desire to dance. We’re always excited to learn so much only in 3 days and have a great time doing it. We highly recommend it to everyone to come and join the fun!”

"Attending Cathy's Dance Retreat the past three years has been a special treat. We have recommended it to other couples who love to dance and enjoy a weekend away together. Cathy's great lessons, meeting others who enjoy dancing and a great setting with good food make it a weekend not to be missed."

"We have been attending Cathy's dance retreats for 6 years. What a wonderful way to spend a cold weekend in Wisconsin. Cathy makes the lessons fun, understandable and achievable for all students of different abilities. She is a patient and outstanding instructor. We feel we learn so much in such a short time."

"We were at Cathy’s first Couple’s weekend in 2009 and had a wonderful time. Due to a variety of conflicts, we took a few years off but were glad the 2014 event worked into our schedule. There have been a significant number of upgrades over the years. First, the dance instruction continues to be top notch. Cathy has the skill to effectively teach a group with a wide variety of abilities so that everyone gets something from the lessons. We dance socially almost every weekend and have been able to use much of what we learned in our regular dancing. The weekend included a very well done video which was ready by the Saturday evening dance. Another upgrade was a beautiful, new, large floor. It was also pretty obvious that Green Lake Conference Center is well versed in handling large high quality events as the food was very good and even though you ate in dining hall they were able to make it feel like a nice restaurant. Finally, Cathy’s assistant (and husband) Frank was another welcome addition which greatly improved the demonstrations and added a lot of fun. If you are looking for a nice weekend to dance with your partner and spend time with others who enjoy ballroom dancing, Cathy’s Couple’s weekend is a great choice."

"This Dance Weekend went well beyond our expectations. We are beginners and didn't know anyone, but we met new friends and felt very welcomed. Cathy's sequenced, organized classes were presented very clearly, and we improved our dancing skills. We loved the whole experience."

Jerry & Nancy

Charleston, SC, 1st time attendees

"We had heard so much about the Weekend Retreat over the past few years, and were thrilled we were able to attend. It was a great experience. Everything was top-notch:  the accommodations, the food, the nice group of dancers, and especially the dance lessons and dance party. As always, Cathy taught in a very personable and professional way. She was patient, and very clear as she presented the various dance styles. Cathy and Frank made quite a team, as they demonstrated patterns in a fun way. Everyone went back home feeling greater accomplishment as a social dancer, happy that they made new friends, and looking forward to another Weekend Retreat next year. The entire event was geared to create a memorable weekend, which it did for us!"

Bob & Gwenn

"This will be our 3rd year for the retreat and plan on attending for as long as Cathy has them. The instruction is great no matter what level dancer you are, Cathy makes it a fun learning experience. If you like to dance, be with friendly people, have romantic meals and a great weekend, don’t miss this event.”

"We've been attending this Weekend since the first year in 2009. The reasons we keep returning are several. To name a few, we really enjoy the socializing, dancing, and most importantly the teaching. Cathy is highly studied and proficient, and has a gentle, graceful way about sharing her skills."

"The Dance Weekend at Green Lake Conference Center is something my wife and I look forward to every year. The location is on a beautiful piece of property with a wonderful view of the lake. The food is excellent and the kitchen staff go out of their way to provide everybody with a variety of selections. The dance floor is amazing with plenty of room for everyone. The dance instruction from Cathy is always a good review for us at the beginner’s class and a challenge for us at the intermediate class. A great mix. We especially enjoy the chance to dress up a little for Saturday dinner and the dance party afterward. The review on Sunday with the DVD to take home helps cement the whole learning process for us. We always enjoy meeting new people along with catching up with old friends from previous dance experiences. We work our calendar around this weekend to make sure we don’t miss it. We especially enjoy Cathy’s way of dance instruction. She is so patient with her teaching style and organizes her lessons so that everyone learns and has fun."

"My husband was a bit skeptical, as we hadn't had much ballroom dance experience, but we had an awesome time! The resort was clean and comfortable and there was plenty of room for the dance lessons and evening dance. There were people of all skill levels there, and the experienced dancers were so very helpful to us beginners. We had a great time, and I would love to continue to attend if we still lived in the area. I would suggest this weekend get-away to couples interested in learning to ballroom dance, or experienced dancers...It's an awesome time for all!"
