Press Quotes

  • ""Intensely musical, graceful, and flowing... Throughout, as the dancers go bounding across the stage, they look like they're having the time of their lives, and so are we.""
  • ""... lovely, full of unabashed romantic sweet and balletic grace.""
  • ""...a swaying, feathery, sprightly affair. ..a reverie on male-female coupledom, with some mischief slipped into it.""
    Seattle Times
  • ""Morris creates the image of a society of 12 celebrating love and community with garlands and vines and whirlpools of dancing.""
