Best in Dance of 2007
– LA Weekly

Of the "ten best" in dance for 2007
– New York Magazine

"...every prolonged minute a sculpted revelation—these barely moving performers subtly champion [a] commitment to diversity, and the effect is mesmerizing."
– The Village Voice, July 31, 2007

"...an unforgetable dance-meets-film-technology evening. Each dance contains its own revelation of energy, phrasing, stillness and style; and the juxtaposition, different on each night, of three simultaneous dances is always enthralling."
– The New York Times, July 27, 2007

"This latest item of public art integrates itself into the poetry of the summer of 2007, as well as the collective memories and mythology of New York City."
– The New York Sun, July 16, 2007

"[The] monumental scope of the portraits has the effect of making the dancers into godlike figures. At this scale and speed everything the dancer does has an air of the miraculous."
– The New York Times, July 8, 2007

"[The portraits], strangely haunting and full of muscular detail, are like underwater paintings."
– Time Out New York, July 5, 2007

"The dancers initially appear to be captured in stillness, until infinitesimal movements become perceptible and the eye adjusts to the extreme slowness and heightened detail. Itís like putting dancers under a microscope."
– The Los Angeles Times, July 4, 2007

"Slow Dancing highlights the dancersí athleticism and superb physical control, but also uncovers what happens beyond the limits of technique and perception."
– The Star Ledger, July 6, 2007

"The result is movement so slow that if you glance at the video, your eye initially perceives a photograph. But look at the image longer and it moves at a rate that allows you to watch the minutia of each step breath by breath."
– The New York Sun, March 20, 2007

"Slow Dancing...promises to offer a new and riveting way...to appreciate with new awareness the fascinating potential of human movement."
– New York Press, July 4, 2007
