"Vernon has been an enormous help over the years. He is a dance teacher who knows the history of Ballroom Dancing, so if I’m choreographing a Film, Opera or Play set in a particular epoch, in a particular country, danced by a particular social group then I always contact Vernon. I know of no other Ballroom Teacher teaching today with this remarkable knowledge and generosity."
