Dance Connection
"A particular resonance, much to charm...Moyes opened her audience's eyes to the cold Newfoundland reality simmering beneath the summer sun."

The Montreal Mirror
"Louise Moyes integrates dance, humour, and a stunning range of accents to bring to life the characters in a tale of her native Newfoundland."
