"Melissa was the consummate professional, she was great with the kids and very kindly shared some signed momentos for the participants to keep. Melissa thought on her feet and changed some of the drills we had her teaching to suit the different skills levels of participants which was much appreciated. It was a great customer experience so I would recommend Pickstar to other people interested in using the service."
