 "impactful and therapeutic dance programming"


-Will Senn

from the Inland Empire Weekly

"The dramatic dance movements and facial expressions of the dancers inspired an enormous emotional response from the audience, prompting Michael Nickerson-Rossi to take many questions from the audience after each dance. Excitement was in the air, with patrons voicing their great pleasure in this well-received event. This is exactly what our desert area has been longing for. 'How wonderful to spend the evening enjoying this cultural expression of modern dance,' said one enthralled guest."

-Dodie Cross

A Special to the Desert Sun

"It communicated both the vigilant control and transcendent grace required by the art of dance, factors which are also essential to recovery from emotional trauma, thereby uniting the medium and the message seamlessly."
