"The allendance intensive directed by Lora Allen was a unique opportunity for my students. They were exposed to modern dance on three levels; learning professional choreography, analyzing through written and verbal discussion and creating a physical representation of movement through painting. It offered my students an advantage by giving them a memorable artistic experience that they would not normally be exposed to at their age."- Laurie Sanford, Williamstown Ballet Theater


"Lora and her dancers taught a wonderful choreography workshop for my students when they came to the University of Kansas. They were not only great with the students, but the exercises and information that they taught from their repertory helped provide a deeper understanding in partnering/weight-sharing tools as they relate to composition and performance." -Tori Lawrence, Tori Lawrence & Co.
