Student Testimonials!

Draconis is an inspiring dancer! He is a mesmerizing treat for the soul. I have also had the pleasure of taking a workshop with him. He was informative, personable, and easy to follow. Taking the time to break down the moves and music so that I could learn easily and understand all the whys and hows. He was tons of fun fun fun and lots of energy. I can’t wait for another oprotunity to take another workshop with him again, and I’m always delighted to watch him perform.

Draconis always brings wonderful energy and great knowledge to workshops. I was fortunate to be able to take the Twerkshop, which was to say the least at first blush intimidating to me , but Draconis made it fun and approachable. His stage presence can’t be beat with fluid movements, modern beats, and exciting dynamic performances that draw any festival crowd. Our festival, Migrations, has had him on stage several times and we know he will always provide memorable, thought provoking, inspired performances.

Draconis is a phenomenal dancer. The handful of workshops I’ve taken have been challenging and opened my eyes to different types of movement. I look forward to catching more of them in the future!
