Soooooo…Amanda Selwyn’s CROSSROADS is exhilarating…non-stop dancing (from lyrical to kick-ass) with a vibrant score…and her dancers are fantastic, both as individuals and as a group. Watch the trailer, then go and see the show!” — Oberon’s Grove

“Distinctive, off-kilter elegance —  The New Yorker 

“There aren’t sufficient words to describe this entire experience. Our senses were continuously activated through every session, as the dancers moved, extended, and coiled through air – while using the power of their bodies as a form of communication, to express vibrant and fun hidden messages and stories of laughter, happiness, solitude, love, and possibly seduction. Every movement and series were an extension highlighting balance, refreshing high energy, strength – and-Renewal.” — NY Social Agenda

“Productions pivot around core themes and through an interplay between athletic and pedestrian motion, activate emotional expression, character, and narrative in a rich and abstract collage.”  High Class Living
 
“Selwyn’s highly physical dances are typically centered on a guiding idea or conceit. Five Minutes, her last piece, was about the measurement of time and was structured in five-minute segments. Her new work, Detour, is about perception and thwarting expectations. By design, it keeps swerving.” —  The New Yorker
 
Amanda Selwyn is a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion – she had me laughing, crying, cringing and gasping all in the short 55-minute production.”  Inside New York
 
Choreographically, Amanda’s point of departure is not an image or a gesture, but a theatrical imperative felt in her insistence on expression.”— Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival’s Pillow Pages

“Ms. Selwyn’s choreography blends athleticism, theatricality, sensuality, romance, passion, and humor in good measure, and a collage of well-chosen music underscores the swings of mood and gives the production a cohesive feeling. — ”    Oberon’s Grove

“Amanda Selwyn’s work is masterly and emotionally expressive, she is truly gifted in the art of dance making.”  NYC Dance Stuff
 
“Immediately you were aware of Ms. Selwyn’s delicious lyricism of movement that flows intrinsic through her work.”—   NYC Dance Stuff
 

“Overall, an ideal evening of dance. The ever-shifting patterns of movement and partnering suggest a dream in which perceptions vary from moment to moment.” —  Oberon’s Grove

“Ms. Selwyn has her own voice, she speaks from a place within the heart, she is unafraid to peer into the corners of one’s soul. She explores every corner, and what she finds she expresses with movement that which cannot be said in words. Detour explores the concept of perception, of how we perceive or interpret what is before us. It creates a world where surrealism is the norm, a world where perceptions shift constantly, but it is a world that is intriguing and you want to see more.” —   NYC Dance Stuff Review

“Ms. Selwyn’s vision is unique and original. It held me transfixed.” —  NYC Dance Stuff

“In less than an hour, Amanda Selwyn and her troupe had given us dance that was entertaining and lovely to watch along with a reminder that time is fleeting: use yours wisely.” —  Oberon’s Grove

“Artfully athletic, expressive choreography… Choreographer Amanda Selwyn uses gesture, narrative, and character to move her dances beyond pure bodies in motion and into social commentary and critique.”—   Flavorpill
 
“With the help of her exquisite dance troupe, Amanda Selwyn has merged sound and movement and the romance of motion and emotion in creating her choreographic masterpieces.” —  Museum Beat

“The choreography by Artistic Director Amanda Selwyn and dancers has a sharp and reverberating quality.” —   Eye on Dance
 
“The strength of Selwyn’s Detour was founded upon a consistent artistic vision in which all of the elements seemed to cohere.” —   DIY Dancer
