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
