“Truly wonderful to get to see works by such talented creative people. Especially loved getting to see the piece that Alexei Kremnev did - really let his sense of humor shine through!”
“I don't know very much about ballet but I was impressed by the athleticism of the dancers and the complexity of the choreography.”
“So impressed with both the choreography and the quality of the performance. The dancers looked so comfortable on stage -- really "sold" the choreography to the audience. Impressive ‘stage presence’ for dancers at the beginning of their careers!”
“Terrific! We loved it; very talented choreographers and dancers.”
“I was shocked at the caliber of talent and energy of the dancers. It was a wonderful evening. I so enjoyed meeting the dancers and being able to put a face to the performers.”
“I really thought the program was wonderful. It was much higher caliber than I would have expected from a group of students. They really are amazing and talented dancers. My friends and I really enjoyed the costumes and the way they added visual interest to the dances. Can't wait for next year!”
“The performances were original and beautifully articulated. The dancers were perfection in motion. We thoroughly enjoyed the show and hope to see more like it.”
