This group is amazing! I had seen them when they were at the Music Center quite a few months ago. The dancers are amazing. One of the founders danced in the last piece.

Amazing choreography, lighting, and staging with brilliant music to accompany them. Unfortunately, the company didn't seem completely up to the task and fell a little short in the execution. Still, I would jump at the next chance to see them again.

Dancers were amazing but choreography was very repetitive. First 2 pieces dragged on and felt too long; only the last U2 piece was able to hold my interest to the end.
