"Nick Winston's imaginative choreography, an exquisite ensemble, everything one needs for a successful show" Ostschweiz Am Sonntag

 

"The Dance of the steelworkers proves that choreographer Nick Winston goes on strong , hard movements , but he also shows a humorous side, when the blue-collar workers dance as they rid their clothes to reveal everyday wear. Winston's work dominated throughout the evening showing many styles: In the second scene the ballet girls of Ms. Wilde dancing gracefully, in the third , Alex moved lasciviously on the catwalk of Harry's Bar. Clothed with very little and very sexy. He also showcased Breakdance, hip-hop and crisp, imaginative ensemble numbers as well as demanding solos." Tagblatt


"The varied and cool choreography by Nick Winston is full of energy . Ensemble dance scenes as well as the individual performances are absolutely first class . The number "Manhunt " and the final dance " Flashdance ... What a Feeling " are surely one of the highlights of the evening" thatsMusicals.de

 

"The audience were thrilled by the grippingly staged musical, with impressive choreography" Anzeiger

 

"At the final dance scene, the audience could hardly stay in their seats, the choreography, combines elements of classical ballet with jazz dance, acrobatics, modern dance and hip hop" Volksblatt

 

"Really any ensemble number from ballet to jazz and street dance to burlesque ignites, and the towering presence of all company members puts the audience at the Flashdance Fever" Sudkurier
