“In her Angolan Portuguese family, everyone can dance, and from the start of our friendship, Angelina managed to convince me that I didn’t have two left feet. She’s turned her passion into dedication. Learning to dance has improved my fitness, helped me to make new friends, given me confidence and relieved a lot of stress.” – Anne Grange
“Croft House Settlement is run showing friendly consideration towards its users. Roger has supported us from day one and has allowed Mulembas to feel at home at this beautiful building. May this essence never change and may we continue to dance together, in joy.”
