“Our firm Textiles Alive had a fabulous time with Ross when we decided to use his services for a social club event. He helped us plan a very fun evening. He picked us all up in the Limo and we went back to his studio/ballroom for some dancing and we had a great time. Ross is very professional and generous with his time and we would thoroughly recommend him to others.”
