Thayne's positive outlook, sincere encouragement to each dancer and his obvious talent all packaged together made for an inspirational morning. He had so much knowledge to share and all the dancers came out motivated to work hard and be better. And I loved the fact that he had so much varied experience -- stage, tv, film, etc!” - S. Ferree
