Meagen Lee did an amazing job with my spring country wedding out at my family's apple orchard this last May. We had a short engagement and she was still able to give us the look we wanted and our wedding turned out gorgeous!
Meagen worked with me to design custom pieces for my boquet, my bridesmaid boquets, nosegays for my mother and mother and law, and unique boutineers for all the men in the wedding. She was very knowledgeable and helpful to find flowers that were in season and to fit my tight budget, but still give me the look I wanted. She even encorporated browns into my boquet (my wedding was all earth tones brown and greens with accents of pink) by creating these adorable pinecone flowers! There were some in my boquet and in my grooms boutineer. I got TONS of compliments on them.
On my wedding day, Meagen set me at ease by showing up early, helping with my arrangements, and personally delivered my bouquet. I was really upset that my great grandmothers could not make it to my wedding, so Meagen worked together with my mom to encorporate a piece of them into by boquet so they were there with me. She pinned in a piece of jewelry and a brooch, one from each of my grandma's, and presented me the boquet with the special message that my grandmothers were there with me even though they couldn't make it in person. It meant the world to me that she would take the time to make such a personal touch (and without me even knowing!). She also helped us find loose flowers to use in some of our other decorating such as the arbor my husband made, and everything turned out better than I ever imagined. Thank you Meagen!! I could not have had a more beautiful wedding day!! -Jen SpychalSee MoreRead Less
Joel is a visionary. As the artistic director of Joel Hall Dancers and Center, he has created more then "just a dance studio". He has created an epicenter for social and cultural exchange.
Literally, everyone who walks through his door, knows they are in a special place where they are accepted for who they are.
Joel Hall Dancers and Center is about more than just dance (even though the dance training is superior and second to none), it's a place where literally everyone can come to collaborate and no one walks away without learning something about themselves or their neighbor. In my opinion, this makes Joel Hall Dancers and Center stand out not only as a dance studio but as a community gem.
When you meet Joel and his staff, you will realize they are serious about dance, dedicated to the art form and deeply caring about their students.
I have been dancing at Joel Hall Dancers and Center for almost 8 years and it has changed my life. I'm forever appreciative and in awe of his center and I know many of my peers would say the same.
Every time I take class somewhere else, I am asked about my training and complimented on the quality of my technique.
Thank you Joel Hall for your vision and dedication to your community and the art of Dance. You truly are a treasure!See MoreRead Less
I have yet to "meet" anyone on Facebook who has captured my attention quite so quickly, and instantly became a fan. He is one of the most motivated, innovative people around. His ideas seem to take on a life of their own. In addition, his intense, personal feelings seem to match up with so many - especially in connection with our POW, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Having been a business owner myself, I would not hesitate to hand the reins of marketing over to him. He is basically "A Good Ole Boy" with success written all over him. It is an honor and a blessing to know that this man will always have your back. See MoreRead Less

Scott is a rare human being. I directed him in one video shoot, and shot video with his direction and him as a star in two others. He has an uncanny ability to know exactly how he appears on camera, and his ideas are always fresh. Scott is always coming up with unique but solid ideas, and he never shrinks from a new opportunity. His work ethic is second to none.See MoreRead Less
I meet Kirby once years ago when he came to Madison to teach a workshop. I am from Chicago so it was good to see a face from the Chicago dance world where I am from. He was so gracious, he sat a talk to me and was every impressed with my eight year old daughter Imani.
Fast forward six years, My 14 year old daughter gets into The Chicago High School for the Arts (ChiArts), and Kirby had had a stroke. I facebooked him to see how he was doing, and to tell about my daughter. I did not know if he would remember us, but he did. He was doing better and was happy to here about Imani. Before we ended our conversation I if ask if he knew if anyone needed a dance teacher in Chicago to let me know because we would have to move there for Imani to go to ChiArts. Two days later I heard from Kirby about a job, and I got it. I could never thank him enough.
What makes Kirby stand out is his love and generosity. He loves what he does and he is so good at connecting with people. People know when you are being real, it allows trust and openness and that is what Kirby gives and gets.See MoreRead Less
Anna's creativity and use of color makes her art very unique. Her book, Everyone Hoops But Me, is delightful. The pictures and story are very appealing to kids of all ages. I watched children's faces light up as they listened and looked at the illustrations. The kids loved the book. All of Anna's art is very creative and unique. It's beautiful and makes me smile.See MoreRead Less
