press QUOTES

"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
