Review of Amy O’s performance at No Side Now in Los Angeles

August 19, 2017

“With mind-blowing skill, O’Neal captured the full gamut of dance. She moved seamlessly between balletic effervescence and technical jazz — Broadway hallmarks. She even presented a subtle encapsulation of post-modern and flowed right into isolation, hip-hop and breaking.

Amy performed a solo interpretation of her last evening length work Opposing Forces at Grand Performances in Los Angeles in an evening of dance curated by Los Angeles Performance Practices called No Side Now. The evening included work by Milka Djordevich, Michaela Taylor/The TL Collective, and d. Sabela Grimes.
