AbbySwing I remember going to your audition and being stunned that there was this whole other dance world, a whole other style of moving, and how great your dancers were (and where in the heck did they come from?)  I thought I was so entrenched in the contemporary dance scene, and it was such a shock for me to see these fabulous jazz dancers who also had amazing technique!!
