Review for 2015 K-Arts Dance Company in Paris
"Very often I worry about the future of ballet and dance, but after seeing the K-Arts performance on Friday, I am now able to be excited and positive about the future of our precious art. The artists are so strong in their technique, control, and artistry, but above all, I could see and feel their passion." - Diana White, former soloist, New York City Ballet, a répétiteur with the George Balanchine Trust
"The quality of whole performance was really wonderful. I am very impressed by dancers' artistic and technical skills. The company prepared well its program. Especially, I enjoyed the Nikiya's solo of Soobin Lee. " - Clotilde Vayer, Ballet Master, Opera National De Paris
