“The program was well thought out with a beautiful serene start of Pastoral Pause, followed by a fierce tour de force of the world premiere of ‘NOW’ and closing out with the most uplifting, fun finale of ‘Prima!’. Thank you, Carolyn and the dancers for allowing us to experience such a journey.” – Joan Chiang Paulin
