Every performance of DWDT invites me to feel something new. Every aspect and detail is thought provoking, beautiful, emotional, and highly skilled from the choreography, to the dancers, the costumes and the sets. I look forward to each new experience that Dominic Walsh and his dancers produce. They deserve international recognition for their art!

I first met Dominic Walsh while dancing with him at the Houston Ballet. Since those years, he has created his own dance company, which is a group of intelligently trained and exquisite dancers who perform contemporary works that speak about what it means to be a human being. Mr. Walsh brings a focused energy into the daily rehearsal process that results in a stunning product onstage. His movement is a philosophy and a lifestyle, much more than memorized dance steps. Mr. Walsh's personal motivation is infectious. I believe that I may have danced my best moments under his direction. I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate in his vision.
