The theatrical steps are punctuated by flashes of delicate technical elegance. It’s an appropriate example of Chase’s work–a swirl of stylistic energy and serious precision, simultaneously indebted to animated musical theater, formal ballet and modern dance.”

A sweetly silly suite set to Laura Nyro; an especially lovely, coy section is paired with her song “Sweet Blindness.” ”

CBE saves its best for last with a Laura Nyro tribute, Slow Float. Brock showcases her music beautifully … the movement is human, hitting on emotions rather than shoving technique to the forefront, despite the technique being evident.”
