  • The feedback for your shows last Thursday and Friday at the Brisbane Convention Centre has been tremendous. I must say, you and your team have surpassed all expectations of what you were going to provide….you were professional, talented, entertaining, absolutely all stunning and a lot of great fun! Our show would not have been the great success it was without the entertainment you provided. It was certainly a talking point and enjoyed by all….including the business owners mum! A big thank you to you and all your team for 2 amazing nights.

  • Hi Mishel Thanks again for your team’s wonderful professionalism, enthusiasm and energy on the night! The show brought the night alive and the dance class had everyone up trying the moves! We had great feedback and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for some Samba love at an event. Please pass on our gratitude to your team!
