"Thanks for creating such a beautiful party for our department. We had a BLAST! Everyone is talking about it today. We loved the venue. The staff was great. Shinya absolutely MADE the party!"

- Debra Towle, HealthPartners Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine

"We had the most wonderful time! Shinya was a fantastic MC; he had us laughing and spoke to all levels of dancers. I know my husband and I will be back as well as some of my co-workers said the same! Everything was set up beautifully just as discussed and your facility is just fantastic….Overall the event was a HUGE success and even those who were complaining about dancing for the party had a great time. Thank you again for hosting such great events and I am excited to come again!"

- Beth Claseman, Kspine, Inc.

"Thank you for a wonderful experience during our EO Black Tie event last Tuesday.  We always follow up our events with a survey and we have received numerous comments on how "surprisingly, my favorite part of the night was the dancing" and appreciation of how you "dumbed it down" so that even the most novice of a dancer could learn the moves and really got everyone involved – No wallflowers allowed!  There was much talk about how much fun your team would add to a holiday party of any size.  Thanks again; I can't wait for the next wedding when my husband and I can practice our tango again!  T-A-N-G-O!"

- Glenda Amar, EO Minnesota Chapter Administrator

"Shinya is a talented, experienced dance instructor with an explosive personality that lights up a room! I've brought many groups to Dancer's Studio and Shinya has made every visit a fun and memorable dancing experience for all of the participants. It has definitely become a favorite destination for the Girlfirneds' Mystery Tours!"

The games were a blast, the line dances were a riot and his energy was through the roof! Thank you so much DS Event Center!"

- P. Stang, General Mills

"I would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank You!" on behalf of Public Art Saint Paul and The University Avenue Project, for joining us on Saturday evening for a truly remarkable event!… the energy and humor of our MC, Shinya; and, who could forget the community dance along ­over 200 people of all walks of life doing a disco line on University Avenue on a Saturday night! Truly a fantastic evening!"

- Ashley H., Project Coordinator, Public Art Saint Paul

"That was the best party I have ever been to…you guys are fantastic. Kelly could not sleep that night due to all the excitement. Shinya is masterful at getting everyone involved and inspired to dance. His passion and enthusiasm for dance put everyone at ease; I have never seen so many stiff guys shake their booty and have a great time doing it. You created a memorable experience for both of us that we will never forget."

- Brian B.

"I can't begin to tell you how FABULOUS Shinya was at our graduation dance! This is my fourth time working this event and I can tell you we have NEVER had a better DJ! I don't think any of the other parents could believe it either – he was SO wonderful! Thank you, thank you! Shinya truly made the night memorable for all!"

- Sara M.

"The kids loved dance and especially having a male instructor. In class today I had a few disappointed freshman classes because we were not doing dance again. It was a blast!!! Even the shy kids had a great time and gained an appreciation for dance as a way to have fun and get exercise. Hopefully we will be able to see Shinya again. Thank you!!"

- Susan D. Lowe Henry,  Sibley High School

"We had a GREAT time! Loved Shinya, once again, and I heard many compliments about him. It was fun to also do some other dances like disco and and line dancing, too. Had a huge group there this year. It was so much fun! Please thank Shinya again for me and on behalf of Roseville Covenant Church."
