    Review of "Adaptation" in New Zealand by Felicity Molloy, theatreview

    The final work had me gasping. A generation of ‘Me Too’ has influenced the dancing scene. Costuming and flying hair are cleverly juxtaposed by some great ensemble dancing, strength in female understanding.

    My dream day would continue at The Sweat Spot where I'd teach my class called Give & Take. The Sweat Spot is owned by Ryan Heffington—it's my favorite studio to teach at in L.A. Give & Take is a contemporary class that helps dancers connect with their bodies and the space they're in.

    "All four (dancers) were remarkable, in this often humorous piece that required split-second timing. Using gesture as metaphor, the dancers grabbed each other, pushed and pulled, fell onto and lifted one another." -- Laura Bleiberg, Emphasis Dance
