"Talk about Creative and Out-of-the-Box! Emily Running is exactly that and she brought her energy and talents to our organization! The past 2 years we have contracted with Emily to teach our Management Team a choreographed, dance routine. We then performed it for (and surprised and energized) our entire operation! I highly recommend and encourage you to do the same for your group! It was memorable and a great glimpse of "another side of management" that your team will really appreciate. Any occasion will do...Halloween, Retirement, Company Party, etc...Give Emily a call!"
