Press Reviews
"...a series of bewitching vignettes."
BROAD STREET REVIEW

"...The Last Glass [does] much to confirm that [Neenan] has one of the most appealing and singular choreographic voices in ballet today."
THE NEW YORK TIMES

[The] dancers in The Last Glass are informal characters; they really dance — giving the impression of utter freedom, though actually judging everything very finely."
THE NEW YORK TIMES

"...catches both the music’s dance current and its yearning."
THE NEW YORK TIMES

"...the dancers, while using the language of ballet, look touchingly impulsive."
