"I will never forget the time I watched Gillian Murphy and Cory Stearns in a rehearsal of La Fille Mal Gardée trying to manipulate a long ribbon to make a cat’s cradle pattern. The first couple of times they became entangled in the ribbon, good-naturedly laughing at their initial fumbling. But a few more times and they had it down pat, and when they brought it to the stage in performance, it was seamlessly done. Once you have been to a studio rehearsal, you will never watch a performance the same way you did before. You will marvel all the more at the dancers’ accomplishments."

- Angelica Smith

"We made a donation to see what would happen and we started getting invited to things. Dress rehearsals, talks, the studio visits were enthralling to see -- the more we came, the more we enjoyed it, and the closer it got us to the Company itself."

- Stephen and Shelley Limmer

"I loved watching the soloists (in this case Luciana Paris and Calvin Royal III) being coached in Don Quixote. More often I see either principals or the corps de ballet. I also enjoyed watching Clinton Luckett coach them. Calvin was rehearsing the role of the Toreador in Don Quixote and Clinton showed him how he could move the cape in a crisper and more dramatic fashion to enhance the dance."

- Janet Slavin

"Gillian [Murphy] worked with Alban [Lendorf] in Le Corsaire, which he was not too familiar with. Kevin [McKenzie] was explaining and playing the slave at the same time, talking Alban through the dance, and while they were marking it, Gillian was humming the music, then whistling it, and then Kevin would explain again. This gave us such insight into the ballet."

- Irene Shen
