  • The production Chant was spectacular.The ladies of N Street had a wonderful time. All in all, there were about 25 women and 8 support staff. Thank you so much for the opportunity for the women to experience your dancers and choreography. Just wonderful!

  • I was at the matinee performance on Saturday and was thoroughly happy and moved. This was also my first time at one of [Chamber Dance Project’s] performances so I was glad I tried something new. I love the Washington Ballet, so that connection was what caught my attention.

  • I DID NOT WANT IT TO END!!! Especially the second half when the singers approached and took us into another world altogether with their vocals and the performers on stage.  It was a VERY unique experience.
