Review for Out on a Limb Dance Theater Company and School , St Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter & granddaughter currently dance with Out On A Limb, and this fall another granddaughter will be joining them. As I have taken my granddaughter to rehearsals, been to recitals & other spectacular performances, I have learned the most beautiful philosophy behind Out On A Limb: That ALL should be given the opportunity to dance!!!
Having always had a love for all things 'dance' this makes my heart happy. At Out On A Limb, it's not about the prettiest tutu, the best photographer, the chachka to purchase or glamorous sets. It's ALL about the girls/boys, women/men and their desire to dance.
Out On A Limb goes out of their way to give everyone a chance to participate by offering free classes on occasion & going into areas that may not have such programs and offering workshops. They also open the performances up to others that may never experience the joy of live shows by performing at alternative venues such as a mall.
As if this was not all enough, I will close with my favorite piece of Out On A Limb, their humility. They do not put on a show of Glitz & Glam. They hold up to the light their DANCERS. By not making it about expensive costumes or training clones to compete, you see & notice each unique & beautiful dancer; their character, their smile, their technique, their beauty & grace.
Affording this gift to all is priceless, & if I'm honest I can barely leave a rehearsal without a tear in my eye, for this kind dedication. Sue Ann Laier
