Testimonials 

“I just wanted to thank you all for your hard work in relation to the Harnisch Lacey Dance Theatre programme.  It was fabulous and their performance blew me away, such strength, agility and control…amazing.  It was such a fantastic opportunity to inspire all those who watched it.  The Rubicon boys were also brilliant and the boys in the school audience in the afternoon could easily relate to these performers.  The Rubicon boys are excellent role models for the young audienceto aspire to.  I feel it is very important that opportunities like this exist for young people to engage with the arts in such a meaningful and appropriate way.  It would be great if this could be arranged on a more regular basis.  I attended the matinee and was so enthused I attended the evening performance for the public as well.  I took my 7 year old son and my 11 year old daughter and they absolutely loved it.  They both do ballet and came away wanting to be dancers!!!  Thanks again for a wonderful opportunity”
Jan English PESS Strategic Lead, South East Wales Consortium

“Thank you for a thoroughly entertaining and extremely enjoyable evening, the dancing was outstanding.  Everyone involved in the show should be very proud of themselves, it showed the different dance art forms and that everyone, young and old can enjoy it.  We look forward to another production of the same magnitude”
