"I think of the billboards run by Christian organizations that appear along the highways and expressways. How lonely and sad they look up there, how parched of beauty, how they appeal to our despair and fear of being so lost out on our lonesome highways of life.  There is no joy, no beauty. Your dance had joy, beauty, thinking, intelligence, a rationality that came from the body. I really appreciate that."

- Peter Sparling, Professor of Dance at the University of Michigan and principle dancer of the Martha Graham Dance Company
