I have been a dance fan for 42 years and I've seen some the best companies perform in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan. Last night (2/9/12) in Houston, I was completely enthralled by one of the best dance performances I've ever seen. DWDT's dancers are among the very best, and best looking, in the world. Wow!

DWDT is always exciting, refreshing, inspiring and thought provoking. Don't blink because you'll miss an innovative and surprising twist in the choreography. The Company consists of the most interpretive dancers who understand Dominic's vision.

Dominic Walsh is a genius when it comes to reinterpreting the "classics" in a relevant, provocative and beautiful way. His original works are equally brilliant, although it is his story-telling which best showcases his talents. His work has a depth and his dancers a precision that can not be found anywhere else in the U.S.

From a sheer entertainment perspective, I'm not sure you can find anything that really compares in Houston. Refreshing and impressive at once. The dancers, the choreography, the music, the set design - all so amazing! Romeo & Juliet blew us away. We really make every effort to attend every performance.

I love DWDT. He has brought back the experience of the Theatre. I enjoyed the energy of the dancers. Watching the company is a true "Art" experience".

DWDT blows me away every time I see this great unsung company!!! I fly from San Francisco to see them perform in Houston at least once or twice a year. I just experienced the Mozart Trilogy the last time I came to a performance and it was spectacular. This is the most important contribution to the evolution of dance as an art form. I will continue to fly to Houston to see the great work of this revolutionary company.
