“Unlike some “Stars of . . .” ballet troupes, which typically perform little more than pas de deux and small excerpts, Moves has 17 dancers from across the ballet’s ranks, including some of its biggest names — enough to do a range of substantive works…Colorado was the first to benefit, but the establishment of Moves is good news for dance lovers across the country. The ensemble makes it more likely that, after a long hiatus, they could soon see one of the world’s top ballet companies at an arts center or dance festival near them.”

The Denver Post

“The touring troupe of 16 dancers (called New York City Ballet Moves) featured several of the company’s soloists and principals. And they collaborated on an exquisitely executed program that gave a strong sense of the company’s legacy and current cultural identity…Tuesday’s performance made clear that this company is composed of the cream of American dancers, each exceptionally expressive and extraordinarily athletic. But they also make up an amazing team, one that’s able to interact and intertwine with awe-inspiring rhythmic precision and emotional expressiveness…But the finale offered this company at its best. Martins’ “Hallelujah Junction” is set to a piece for two pianos by John Adams (performed live, as was all the music save Thom Willems’ electronic-flavored score for the Forsythe piece). In outfits that evoked the black and white of piano keys, the 11 performers were so splendidly in synch on their mid-air spins and high-energy interactions that the audience’s adrenaline poured out in spontaneous ovations.”

“The entire evening was a study in opulent fusion, with classical nobility undulating through modern counterpoints in music and dance for this select group of performers on the esteemed company’s fall MOVES tour…This breathtaking collection of contrasts repeats tonight as one of the gems in Hancher’s 45th sapphire season celebration.”

The Iowa City Gazette

“With about 20 dancers at any one time (they vary according to schedules, among other things), this group’s work is in rotating repertoire. Shorter pieces come and go with just as much grace and technique as one would expect from the New York City Ballet, but with a little more flash and sometimes, more fun.”

Las Vegas Review-Journal

“New York City Ballet MOVES delivered a varied and energetic program Tuesday at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis. The touring troupe features City Ballet stars plus up-and-coming talents. An innovative spirit still thrives within the venerable institution, now in its 64th year, particularly in repertory selections from City Ballet’s late co-founder George Balanchine as well as William Forsythe.”
