"I had the pleasure of working with choreographer Godeliève Richard when she set her dance “The Mill Dream” on the young dancers of Ballet Renversé in 2015. Her dance imagery and the blending of that imagery with local history - the textile mills of Colrain - were memorable. One of the young dancers who performed the Mill Dream is still dancing and remembers it as a powerful experience. And Godeliève is a pleasure to work with."
- Karen Shulda, Choreographer and Director, Ballet Renversé (retired)
