“I have been able to connect on a personal level to VALLETO and the beautiful dancers, in a way that surpasses the barrier of screen. I was drawn to this company because I felt a sense of truth in the work. A beautiful rawness and vulnerability. An atmosphere that gives the dancer the ability to bring all of themselves to the movement.”
