Support from the Community:
“To see Hannah grow as a choreographer to the point where she is beautifully and seamlessly creating entire movement scores for plays like “Indecent” had been an honor. She is always the most professional, prepared, and kind person in the room. She manages to get things done with understanding and confidence because she puts in so much work outside of the rehearsal room. Hannah has become a vibrant and intrinsic member of this town in a short time and will no doubt continue to flourish here and elevate all our performing arts.”
