Reviews- Press Quotes

Eva Dean Dance is “…an unalloyed delight” with an “infinite-seeming range of lithe expressive physicality.”
Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times a must see production with performers who display a “… a tremendous mixture of physical strength and generous artistry.”
Avery Pearson,

"So instinctual was this spark that [Dean’s] work bounced out ofher heart via five brilliant dancers and onto the spacious Dixon Place stage…The uber-talented UBA dancers then take over with a tremendous mixture of physical strength and generous artistry… we are moved to tears and joy— their passion and art is infectious. Kudos to Eva Dean who inspires a group of dancers to be one interconnected beautiful unit.”
Avery Pearson,

“Dean’s use of balls as the entire premise of an evening-length piece takes away the gimmicky quality of the ball dance genre and turns it instead into a game of endurance and originality.”
Sophie Ernst, Show Business Weekly

"…soothing to watch—with its gentle, mesmerizing choreography—and energizing”
Pia Catton, Wall Street Journal

“Dean created a feeling of ritual celebrants hidden in a catacomb or along a pyramid’s passage to a chamber… Dean’s wild energy broke free of expected bounds. Dan Froot, playing his raucous saxophone, was borne aloft and paraded past us. As the darkness engulfed the scene for the last time, another glass shattered.”
Linda Arlene Small, The Village Voice

“It is my firm belief that Eva Dean Dance is making a difference in Dance, and the perception of dance, among a new generation of audience members. Please do what you can to support this vibrant, essential company.
Elena K. Holy, Producing Artistic Director, The New York International Fringe Festival

“…obsessive rhythms…sly physical jokes…Dean’s adventure in antic minimalism had a sweet, unbuttoned quality…(the dancers) wearing bright leather gloves, used the table as drum, vaulting horse, platform, and choreographic inspiration; their bodies sprang through space, making music and movement simultaneously…”
Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice

“… the choreography by Eva Dean made effective use of the church’s space …Waves of dancers entered, rolling across the floor. Dancers were also carried in like logs. All of these large scale activities pleased the eye.”
Jack Anderson, The New York Times

“… elegant performing, inventive choreography…lighthearted, decorous dance full of counterbalances and gentle supports for falling bodies…
it reminded me of why, sometimes, dance matters: in its very lightness, it lifts our cares.”
Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice
