Francesca is as beautiful in person as she is to watch and I am constantly in awe! She is the most kind, caring and encouraging teacher who really wants to help us individually to improve and she does it in such lovely way with a constant smile, and breaks down any fear of feeling inadequate of self conscious.  Everyone just relaxes into it and we all end up learning and laughing and somehow producing an amazing performance at the end of the week!
