A bit clunky and repetitive. A work in progress. Need more movies and more alignment between the music and the dance and better execution. The first dance number was very good and then it dropped off from there.

Quotes & Highlights

“The formal clarity and controlled elegance of ballet [and] the raw, athletic exuberance of street dance.”* —*_Boston Globe_
“Where break dancing requires fine isolations and a hunkering compactness for low-to-the-ground spins, ballet emphasizes leverage and length. It’s satisfying to see both qualities fuse in one body.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
