“Upper bodies are beautifully open; legwork is firm and clear; beaten steps are fleet…I was completely interested in the complex details shown, and by the individual skills of each dancer….Above all, everything here found life in the keenness with which all these dancers engaged with their music.”
Alastair Macaulay, Senior Dance Critic, The New York Times
