FEEDBACK

"Fabulous class - a real antidote to life's challenges" 

Adult Contemporary dancer

"I feel honored to be in such safe, capable, and creative hands." 

Yama Company dancer

"AllouAqui Dance Theatre Company had so much to share! High in energy and consistent in pushing the students more and more in each session. All the knowledge they shared with us was very different from what we had done so far."

Bath Spa University student 

"Different essential dance theatre skills were explored. Their dynamics were incredible and AllouAqui will always be an inspiration. Besides having learned new things, I had a lot of fun in the class."

Balleteatro student

"It has been a pleasure as always to have your energy and enthusiasm to keep us going."

"AllouAqui taught me how theatre and dance can be so related and connected.

They pushed me to be imaginative and create without fear and be confident with my 'weirder' self and different ideas."
