"I completed the Urbankick online training course 110% ready to teach my own class. Shane's videos are clear, concise and easy to follow. I also appreciated the opportunity to receive thoughtful, personalized feedback--something that is not always easy to get in a one-day training workshop. The ability to go at your own pace through the course is a huge plus, and I learned tips and techniques that I've already applied to additional formats I teach. Proud to be a part of the Urbankick family!" -- Carolyn Mues, St. Louis, MO
