I couldn’t get over the quality of the dancers and choreography. Your technical prowess thrilled me, putting you in a class with today’s major dance companies.

Perry: "We yearn for perfection while the only way to perfection is through the imperfection of all creation. Every step we take brings us to an unanticipated crossroad of endless possibilities, often elusive and always imperfect. So we dream and create and hope to, someday, get back onto the very path we chose in the first place, knowing all the same that ultimately all paths lead to an inevitable end.."
