Review quote

"Instead of taking pride in the ways she excelled, Penelope Sparrow beat herself down and allowed her insecurities to taint a life of great promise with her body image issues. In real life, that's not a story that often ends well. The "Art of Falling" becomes a story of hope, however, thanks to Penelope's incredible second chance. Reflecting on this is a conversation many young women should have--especially those struggling to reconcile societal messages with their passion for movement and the judgment of the mirror. My heart went out to all involved as Craft presents her mesmerizing characters with depth, understanding, and ethos." - Lana Kay Rosenberg, artistic director, Miami University Dance Theatreshow more
