"Ms. Selwyn's choreography blends athleticism, theatricality, sensuality, romance, passion, and humor in good measure, and a collage of well-chosen music underscores the swings of mood and gives the production a cohesive feeling." - Oberon's Grove

"Amanda Selwyn is a master at illustrating the symbiosis of sound and movement, the romance of motion and emotion – she had me laughing, crying, cringing and gasping all in the short 55-minute production."

In the Studio with Amanda Selwyn - May 2013

"Immediately you were aware of Ms. Selwyn’s delicious lyricism of movement that flows intrinsic through her work."NYC Dance Stuff
NYC Dance Stuff on Pushing Progress 2013

"Overall, an ideal evening of dance. The ever-shifting patterns of movement and partnering suggest a dream in which perceptons vary from moment to moment."

Oberon's Grove Review

"Ms. Selwyn has her own voice, she speaks from a place within the heart, she is unafraid to peer into the corners of one’s soul. She explores every corner, and what she finds she expresses with movement that which cannot be said in words. Detour explores the concept of perception, of how we perceive or interpret what is before us. It creates a world where surrealism is the norm, a world where perceptions shift constantly, but it is a world that is intriguing and you want to see more." - NYC Dance Stuff

Oberon's Grove Review

"artfully athletic, expressive choreography... Choreographer Amanda Selwyn uses gesture, narrative, and character to move her dances beyond pure bodies in motion and into social commentary and critique."
- Flavorpill

"The choreography by Artistic Director Amanda Selwyn and dancers has a sharp and reverberating quality."
- Eye on Dance

"Selwyn’s highly physical dances are typically centered on a guiding idea or conceit. Five Minutes, her last piece, was about the measurement of time and was structured in five-minute segments. Her new work, Detour, is about perception and thwarting expectations. By design, it keeps swerving." - The New Yorker

"The strength of Selwyn’s Detour was founded upon a consistent artistic vision in which all of the elements seemed to cohere." - DIY Dancer
