          Previous Reviews:
On The Town
Chris Jones-Chicago Tribune wrote:

"Choreography, by Alex Sanchez, is fresh,
detailed, athletic and, in several spots,
narratively inspired."
Hedy Weiss-Chicago Sun Times wrote:
"Alex Sanchez's work is
spectacular-wildly ingenious and playful
from start to finish.
"
Sylviane Gold of The New York Times
says:
"Mr. Sanchez's best
choreography,at once smooth and
punchy,is reserved for the guys. In the
action packed Crapshooters Dance. The
musicals opening, with their splayed
legged jumps and arm-waving gyrations
recall the choreography of Keystone Kops
comedy-one packed with Kops who went
to ballet school."
