The Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company has been acclaimed for its artistic excellence and range, as well as for its elegance and power,
technical ability, versatility, and “inner fire.” Critic Sheila Abrams stated that Dorfman’s work “frequently
stands out for its cerebral underpinnings,” and went on to say that Dorfman’s artistry was “a reason for Garden
State dance aficionados to stand up and cheer.” (Observer Tribune)
