"Set to an assortment of waltzes, it unleashed a nonstop barrage of inventive and often unorthodox ways for nine dancers to emphasize the waltz beat."
"Morris shows how a waltz can smack you in the face, causing you to keel over, and it's just as useful for staggering as for swooning."
"Morris at his structural best - a mathematically musical study of how a movement phrase can be tweaked, torqued, and twisted into a plethora of permutations."
“Originally Canonic Waltz Studies, the title was changed when Morris discovered that not all the musical selections were waltzes. He created it on the students of his summer workshop at On the Boards in Seattle. The piece was a workshop for him too; he was about the make New Love Song Waltzes, and he was practicing working with ¾ time.”
