Dec, 2022

"Only their faces are exposed, covered with a sheer piece of white fabric and smiling wide. Smiling but not happy. Their unsettling demeanor is embodied in their direct and specific movement qualities, like they are dolls on a string.” - Mary Jane Agnew (ODC Dance Stories) READ MORE

Review: "Dancing in Snow (San Francisco)" by Jennifer Norris

Dec, 2022

"L.A. Contemporary Dance Company… performed it flawlessly Friday evening in a touring presentation at San Francisco’s ODC Theater. …It's one hour of highly theatrical contemporary dance [with] a distressing undercurrent. The costumes alone are worth the trip.” - Jennifer Norris (Jen Norris Dance Reviews) READ MORE

Review: "If These Walls Could Talk" by Jeff Slayton, LA Dance Chronicle

Nov, 2022

"LACDC is rapidly becoming one of LA’s strongest companies... With three world premieres on the program, Artistic Director Jamila Glass has guided to greater heights of professionalism.  The work presented was powerful and the cast is probably one of the strongest since LACDC was co-founded in 2005 by Kate Hutter Mason."

Review of "Dancing in Snow" by Tam Warner, LA Dance Chronicle

Jun, 2022

"[George's] dance vocabulary runs the gamut from modern to jazz, ballet to street, with a deft touch of musical theater tossed in. The movement emanates from the core with the torso always in use and the arms beautifully rendered. With small gestures or perhaps a nod of the head [he] captures the musical accents and innuendo throughout. He understands the need to keep the stage moving, yet also knows when to slow it down for a solo or unison work. I was instantly drawn in."  - Tam Warner (L.A. Dance Chronicle)
