‘’We couldn’t have hoped for a better choreographer and your cheerful, flexible approach made you a real pleasure to work with. You are a star…’’
The Walt Disney Company
‘’Thank you for creating such a quality piece of work at such breakneck speed. Your soundtrack was beautifully orchestrated. Enthralling, moving…it guided the storyline with such a sure hand. Your costume direction was perfection-threatening yet sensual, start yet avant-garde…Finally; the choreography was simply a total pleasure. I just so enjoy the seamless fluidity with which you effortlessly reveal picture after picture to an audience.’’
“I just can’t praise you enough and have been effusive about you all morning here at Jack Morton. It was a pleasure to work with you in pre-production but seeing you in action on site was awesome. We all know that we were fitting 4 days of rehearsals into 2 and you stuck to the schedule like clockwork. I just can’t think of any other choreographer or creative director (and I have been in the industry nearly 20 years) who has the same discipline and overall understanding of the needs of the total project. …. Added to that everyone noted your creativity and your willingness to go the extra mile. The Clients are over the moon and it is of course all down to you. All the months of very challenging clients were compensated by the fact that we had struck gold in finding you so thank you very much. It was also a real pleasure to work with such a thoroughly nice person….”
