We ran across this testimonial on Facebook and have printed it here with Stefanie's blessing: "Re-reading this post, I realize I didn't express how very welcoming, professional, and kind Julia Gorchakova was to me when I walked into Artistry In Motion by Julia Gorchakova. Julia doted upon me very much, and made sure to take care of every detail of my dress. She absolutely had my best interests at heart, and that is something money cannot buy. Her designs are worth every penny, not only because they are beautiful and well constructed, but also because she actually cares about the person who wears them. At least, that was my experience of this exceptional lady."

"Julia has a distinctive sense of style that is reflected in all of her stunning dress designs! The one I chose is extremely well constructed, flows beautifully on the dance floor and sparkles with amazing stones. Most importantly, the dress makes me feel special and confident, so that I do my best dancing every time I wear it! Thank you, Julia!!!!"

"I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for my spectacular new Latin dress, it is truly a masterpiece! I have had clothing made before, but never with such passion and attention to detail. From the first flawless sketch, to the measurements taken, to the single fitting, (done with the help of Federal Express!), to the finished product, every promise was kept and the dress was delivered ahead of schedule. Not only did the design and adornments exceed my expectations, you managed to capture my personality as well! The dress fits and moves like a dream - something that only a champion, such as yourself, would understand and be able to create for others. I just finished a competition where all eyes were on me, and I assure you, it wasn't because of my dancing!!! Julia, Renee and Karen, I cannot thank you enough!"

"I am writing this testimonial for Artistry in Motion because I love the dresses that I have and am so impressed with the quality and creativity of each dress. I have been dancing for a little over three years and have several of Julia's dresses. My first dress was a rhythm dress and I was very nervous about getting a custom designed dress because I wasn't sure how it would look and fit. Julia sent several designs and I chose one. When the dress came I was in awe of how beautiful it was and how well it fit. The quality and design exceeded anything I could have hoped for. I knew at once that I wanted a smooth gown. I now have many Latin and smooth dresses and love each of them. I feel wonderful in the dresses and I know that wearing them makes my dancing better. The quality of Julia's dresses is the very best. Her designs are creative and unique. Each dress is one of a kind. Every time I wear a dress I get so many compliments and know that I look different than anyone else on the dance floor. The best part of working with Artistry In Motion is the relationship that has developed with Julia. She is fantastic, down to earth and so honest about what will look good on me and what will not. She now knows me well enough to make suggestions and I totally trust her judgment. I know that she genuinely wants me to look good when I dance and only creates quality amazing dresses that will look good. I know that I will purchase more dresses in the future and I will never go anywhere else. Artistry In Motion is the best place to buy dresses."

"My dresses are so beautiful! Your sketches, the suggestions for colors and fabrics along with the skill of your dressmakers and the artistry of your beading became the most stunning creations - eye catching and truly the most spectacular creations on the dance floor. They move so gracefully and always get compliments from the other dancers - makes me feel like Cinderella! I don't know where you hid the "magic" bead on them but the definitely bring me luck when I wear them! Thanks to you and all your wonderful staff for my fabulous gowns!!!"

"I am so happy to have found you, your wonderful staff and your incredible dance costumes. As a student of ballroom, being able to feel that I look great is a real confidence builder. As a performer, looking great is a must! You are always ready with help and ideas that only the "voice of experience" could have and that is so appreciated. There is also the added plus of feeling that you and your staff are more than a business, you are truly interested in how we are doing, both on the dance floor and in our lives. The study of Ballroom Dancing is a complex and exacting study. I will not hesitate to recommend your dance costumes to anyone who is a student of dance and desires to look extraordinary. Many thanks!"
