Reviews


     “Mr. Damon, a smart, fluid dancer with an exquisite attack, is good at making room for himself”- Claudia LaRocco, The New York Times, Sunday March 25 2007

“The Movement…got a remarkable blend of eerie calm and snapping velocity from Colby Damon” -Marty Haughley, The Oregonian, July 16 2007

   "Colby Damon is fluid, flexible, strong, passionate, diverse, multi-leveled, and precise. His talent is gargantuan and indefatigable. He is amazing to watch."

    "Damon’s is a strong character choreographer...showing his classical vocabulary prowess...as well as an effective choreographic synergy with the score."
