Praise for Shifting: “Left the audience in awe.”

“Two guest choreographers were brought to Sewanee and created pieces that flattered the dancers’ artistic ability and athleticism. Daniel Gwirtzman, artistic director of New York City-based Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company, crafted a duet for himself and director Courtney World that emphasized the power of simplicity and left the audience in awe. World’s and Gwirtzman’s movements compliment each other beautifully as they travel across the stage in unison.” The Sewanee Purple.
