TESTIMONIALS

"We recently had the pleasure of hosting Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company for a two-week community dance residency, during which the company held immersive programming with elementary and middle students from low-wealth schools, senior citizens, experienced youth and adult dancers, and individuals with disabilities. During their time in Wilmington, the company demonstrated incredible versatility and educational expertise. We were consistently impressed with their ability to adapt to each group with which they worked, as well as by their extensive preparation and the seamless way they functioned as a team. The experience was powerful and transformative for our community--and the impact will be long-lasting."- The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College, 2019 

"We have been bringing professional companies to Baton Rouge for almost 30 years and this was one of our best experiences ever! We fell in love with Ririe-Woodbury when they delighted entire schools with their lecture demonstrations. They then taught incredible master classes before wowing our public with their diverse repertory and outstanding dancers. Add that to the generosity of their publicity appearances and guest lecture and we could not have been happier. They are smart, generous and incredibly talented. I wish we could have them every year!"

"I just wanted to say how thrilled I was with this assembly. The feedback I got from the kids was very positive, but most importantly, the quality of their movement improved TREMENDOUSLY after the performance. The students haven’t had much movement experience. I’ve taught some creative movement [and] it’s been a struggle to get students to move creatively. After the assembly, the kids had SO many more ideas and were moving in really interesting ways, sometimes without even needing prompting from me. The assembly was worth many, many classes of my instruction, and the company did a really fantastic job. Thanks for offering this performance, and thanks to the company for their work to create a fantastic assembly."
