Rebecca Kelly Ballet
"An unusual degree of individuality in the way each dancer moves, the speed and attack of one, the upper body of another, the charismatic
presence of a third.."
"treating topics so literally and yet fitting them so universally into the crucible of Everyoman's experience."

"visual polyphony, a kind of choral choreography which makes the heart sing"
