Having the opportunity to tour Austria with Young!Tanzsommer/Stars of Tomorrow was above expectation for directors, dancers and parents. The moments we all shared will be treasured for a lifetime. I wish to thank the incredible staff for their eye for detail in coordinating this marvelous experience.  It was refreshing that the caliber of the dancers from the participating companies were of a high caliber, allowing us all to be proud of each performance. The venues were exceptional and the audiences were full and very receptive. We appreciated that your scheduling allowed proper preparation, as well as time to see the sites of each interesting city. Your tour guides were so entertaining, and the parents had so much to enjoy when their dancer was rehearsing. We shall be joining you again in a couple of years.

have.“
