features | INTERVIEWS
"Joan Padeo was the performer to watch. She had a powerful stage presence and ability to surrender to the moment and to be fully engulfed in the music and movement."
–A. Ordaz Dance | Agave Americana | LA Dance Chronicle
"Stunning performance...Padeo's rendition of Tennessee Waltz is a joy."
–Carlon | FLEX | LA Dance Chronicle
"Padeo's singing performance sunk deep as it made me relive...heartbreak."
–Acts of Matter | Love Letter | Spot LA
"One special moment was when Joan Holly Padeo's light breathy voice sang [Patsy Cline's] 'Crazy,' so moving so unpretentious."
–Acts of Matter | Love Letter | LA Dance Chronicle
"Joan's very descriptive telling of Emmet Till's young battered face while lying in an open casket is especially unsettling. The choreography is strong and the movement rigorous."
–B. Dunn Movement | Add Water & Stir | LA Dance Chronicle
"This is a piece that I didn't know I needed until I saw it...nothing short of breathtaking."
–Iris Company | The Other Side | No Proscenium
