                                             "Brilliant!"
                                                    ...Kevin Cooper, Director, The Amos Eno Gallery, NYC

         "I liked Marilynn Danitz's dance, 'DANCER XING'.
         I loved the calligraphy in the beginning...the signs.
         The images were very strong, very inventive.
         I felt the honesty and the naturalness in the movement...
         ...its integrity.
         The work is motivated.
         I loved the projections on the body...the coloring of it.
         I liked the way the dance took its time to build...
         ...and the existing...the taking off, the stripping off the costume...
         ...and the signs: "NO", "RECKLESS", "DROPPING OFF THE EDGE"...
         It conjured up subjective feelings in me which I liked.
         I loved the bubble. The softness of that was another place...a secret world. It was          mysterious and wonderful...so captivating.
         I loved the order...the information that you get from that part, the
         directions, the bisons, the jumping deer...
         It had tremendous images and integrity.
                                                           ...Dan Wagoner, Looking at Dance

         "Beautiful! The images were so riveting that I didn't know where I was,
         but I wasn't lost in space. It set up an environment for me. I got lost in it. The          images were wonderful--quite original."
                                                            ...Carolyn Adams, Looking at Dance
