We would like to thank all our sponsors for their generosity and hospitality over the last several years—without their support, the filming of Classical Stretch would not be possible. The beautiful backgrounds in each episode are due to the picturesque scenery of the gorgeous resorts, hotels and tourist attractions where we’ve had the privilege to film. Thank you for helping us maintain the quality and charm of Classical Stretch at a standard that is much appreciated by our longtime viewers!
