"BOTTOM LINE: To Dance is a testimony to strong will, determination, and effort overcoming oppression and tyranny, based on the beautiful story of the early life of dancer Valery Panov." - Theatre is Easy
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------
 

"...a riveting musical play featuring wonderful acting, exquisite dancing  and telling the true story of the Russian Jewish dancer, Valery Panov." - Andy B Sports

"TO DANCE leaps with energy....Carrey imbues the lead character with grace and defiance, as well as a Broadway-caliber voice and superior dancing skills; Kathryn Morgan, a former member of New York City Ballet, shines as his girlfriend, Galina, dancing with great strength and artistry." - Time Out New York​

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

 

"The groundwork is there, the story is compelling and there’s a waiting  audience -­ I  understand that  all  the  Fringe performances of To Dance  are sold out.  I don’t doubt that this  Fringe appearance will be the springboard for something more – and that it’s now unlikely that the Panovs’ story will be forgotten again anytime soon."  - Critical Dance

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

 

"Panov’s frustrations, confidence, and driving need to dance come through in Jesse Carrey’s charming portrayal. Kathryn Morgan (now returned to the stage after a debilitating illness forced her to leave the New York City Ballet in 2013) dazzles Fringe-goers in a series of dance sequences as Galina and with Carrey." - Phindie

"Other notables among the dozen performers are Rick Roemer as a despicable KGB agent; Joey Ama Dio, who plays relatively small roles but shines in them, especially when singing and dancing; and Andrew DiTusa as a young Valery." - Hy Reviews

"...the dancing in To Dance is great. I’m no dancer but to me it looks as pro as what you’d expect on Broadway... mostly the numbers we see consist of long, graceful movements and pirouettes, and these elite artists carry their bodies with refined grace..." - NYTheater Now
