Take Five Press quotes
'a cheerful company work, at its best in showing off its dancers. There are no characters, and no sets. Jean-Marc Puissant's costumes hint at period detail, casting the dancers as 1950s jazz fans.'
Zoe Anderson, The Independent
'Bintley writing at his classical, fluent best and his dancers revelling in the choreography....It finds a happy response to the music and a lovely flow of movement. Praise too for the quartet of Simon Allen, Saxophone, Dudley Phillips, bass, Steve Lodder, piano, and Ralph Salmins, drums.'
Mary Clarke, Dancing Times.
'Brubeck's music is infectious'
Allen Robertson, The Times
'[Birmingham Royal Ballet's dancers] inhabit Dave Brubeck's numbers with a loose-limbed ease.'
Louise Levene, Sunday Telegraph
'Holds our rapt attention from start to finish with the opportunity for the superb dancers to show their paces in a variety of combinations.'
Donald Hollins, Gloucestershire Echo
'a humdinger of a ballet, as exhilarating to watch as clearly it is to dance. It is amazing how much energy is produced by the ten dancers.'
Terry Amos, Ballet.co.uk
'Full of joie de vivre'
Linda Kirkman, Bournemouth Daily Echo
'Bintley has created an instant, polished classic.'
David Bellan, Oxford Times
Sue Edwins, Southampton Southern Daily Echo
