PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS

IN THE SPACE BETWEEN with VLA DANCE

"I've seen In The Space Between 3 times and each time it gets better! Victoria is a brilliant choreographer and her dancers are phenomenal. The movement between the dancers and the colors of their costumes and the overall set was all spectacular. I look forward to the next production!"

CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA

with Boston Lyric Opera
 

"Boston Lyric Opera’s ‘Cavalleria rusticana’ is a triumph" - The Boston Globe

"A trio of three balletic modern dancers ... sometimes acting as a Greek chorus, and sometimes portraying festive elements like flowers and crowds, dancers Victoria Awkward, Michayla Kelly, and Marissa Molinar made for a sinuous, seething unit. They added much-needed life and motion to the production as a whole" - The Boston Musical Intelligencer

October 2021 at Leader Bank Pavilion, Boston

SCRAPE with Victoria Lynn Awkward

 

"In Scrape, Victoria Awkward and Michayla Kelly move together ... Their technique is beautiful, and their control quite impressive for dancing in sneakers on pavement — yet what seems to be more important than that is their connection in movement ... their attunement to each other is consistent and organic" - Dance Informa

THE NUTCRACKER

with Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre

"Highlights of the second act character dances included ... an adorably perky “Chinese” (Sabrina Appleby and Michayla Kelly)." - The Boston Globe

"Sabrina Appleby and Michayla Kelly in Tea were also perfectly together with a playful energy and joy they brought to the stage." - City Living Boston

December 2018 & 2019 at Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre & The Strand Theatre in Boston

SAND with VLA DANCE

"Leading into the intermission, Michayla Kelly drew down her solo and then gestured audience members to come look at the paintings in the gallery. This was a smooth way to end out the act, as well as to encourage audience members to enjoy the art that the space had to offer.​" - Dance Informa

January & April 2019 at Abigail Ogilvy Gallery & Fountain Street Gallery

PARIDE ED ELENA and LA BELLE HELEN with Odyssey Opera

"Melinda Sullivan’s choreography captured the spirit of reform ballet, which went hand-in-hand with Gluck and Calzabigi’s operatic innovations. Four men and four women performed barefoot; steps, leaps, and elevations were graceful and modest, and the emphasis was on pantomime and tableaux. Flowing costumes added to a feeling of classical friezes brought to life." - Bach Track

February & June 2019 at
