… it must be at least as fun as What a Wonderful World, a piece which fills the stage with ebullient dancers bounding around in their underwear. It’s so full of raucous, fun energy that one doesn’t care if it’s fluff. On second thought, maybe joie de vivre isn’t fluff.”
– Dance Europe

The performance closes with What a Wonderful World, an expression of the universal experience of dancing in one’s bedroom – in one’s underwear. Filled with an adolescent orange soda pop energy, the dance propels the audience back into the real world.”
