What Audiences Say...

 

“It’s so reaffirming to see a three year old’s movements legitimized in such an art form.” 

 

“At the end, he was happy, and he wanted to move more- he did not want to stop…”

 

“She took delight in running near the dancers, being acknowledged by them, and then running away.”

 

“She was very interested in the dances. ‘Who were those big girls?’ ‘Are they dancers?’”

 

“She enjoyed it so much. She could hardly believe she helped you compile the choreography. She was smiling ear to ear when I confirmed that some of the moves were hers.”
