What reviewers said about the last four years of ChEck Us OuT Dance Festival:
 

"BOTTOM LINE: There couldn't have been a more beautiful backdrop for this site-specific dance festival. The ChEck Us OuT Dance Festival had its third annual performance this last Saturday at Central Park's Summit Rock. It was a fun filled evening with a lively crowd gathered around on benches and blankets- a more quiet and intimate version of Central Park's Summerstage." -- Sofia Negron, Theatre Is Easy

"The Check Us Out Dance Festival was a Celebration of Female Choreographers and passionate dancers who transformed the Summit Rock stage in Central Park into a live theater, and for that they should all be celebrated." -- Elisa Kimble, BroadwayWorld.com

We are please to announce that our work has gone international. Last summer, 2014, our piece IS MY BODY? was performed at The Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland in.  IS MY BODY? created by Allison Brzezinski, Kendra Dushac and guest artist Collin McConnell, has been in development since the fall of 2011. The solo work is based on conceptions of female identity and body awareness. Sometimes women see themselves as one way reaching for the ideal, in which their self-image becomes distorted.
