'SSDC is a new and exciting company due to their ability to combine dance styles clearly and accessibly.... their work is inspiring to young and old. The company has an energetic style, which they enrich with quality choreographic techniques. I believe their performance would enrich and enhance any dance activity and festival - opening up contemporary dance to all, some of the company members are also teachers which I have seen inspire and encourage...'

'I have been working within the dance and education sector for over ten years and this piece has inspired me. It made me want to push those I work with harder and has challenged how I think about choreography and taking risks. An excellent demonstration of physicality and art - beautifully performed - I can't wait to see more!'

Practising the freezes has made me see my abs again! The routines are so fast that you don't have time to think about whether you are breathing enough...the survival instinct just kicks definitely helps you keep fit!
