KATE MUIR uncertified reviewer June 17, 2011
I went along very last minute to this show and I am so pleased I did. What a fantastic show. These girls deserve a huge round of applause as does the choreographer. Coming from London I have seen lots of dance shows and this really blew me away. The timing was perfect and the girls performed from their toes through to their fingertips. ... full review

8 Piece Legs and Thighs is a big slice of delicious fun. Highly trained dancers execute interesting and clever choreography while dissecting the images and expectations of todays women. Smart, funny and not an implant in the bunch. Well done ladies!... full review

8 Piece Legs and Thighs: GO!! It's a fun, funny and insightful look at our body-image obsessed culture. Thoughtfully choreographed with wit, humor and a whole-hearted embrace of the inner dork, the piece is well-articulated by highly trained dancers, who manage to be delightfully human. I laughed. I cried. I reveled in moments of beauty and reflected in moments of bare honesty... At the end of it all, I was left with an appreciation for women of all shapes and sizes and a profound yearning for mint chip ice cream. Yum!... full review

Didn't know what this show was, but it looked fun and was playing next to a theater I was at the night before. It was a fun way to spend some time... The dancing was good, but I almost wish the space was bigger.... full review

It was getting late and I was tired, but taking my friends' lead I saw this show and I was not only woken up, but enthralled from the start. Forgive me for my lack of technical knowledge when it comes to contemporary dance, but from the opening performer’s first movements my attention was instantly caught. She captured the awkwardness of a young girl's adolescence perfectly. The characterisation did not come across as caricature, (which sadly is often the case in others dance shows), but was approached with sensitivity, making the comedic aspects a pleasure to see: we are watching an actor as well as a talented dancer, which is a treat in itself to see. The choreography in the more dreamlike sections was beautiful and sexy with the more comi... full review
ELLIE FOX uncertified reviewer June 18, 2011
LOVED this show! From start to finish I was hooked! The fabulous dancing, the wonderful expressiveness of the dancer's faces and emotions, the story-telling choreography, the humour, the lighting, the costumes and the performer's abilities to relay story through movement were all incredible. Do not miss this show!... full review

I was walking by when the performance started, so I walked in and paid my fee. I now realize that I am not a fan of dance, so I should not even be reviewing these guys. The first performance was quite forgetable, but their signature piece was really good. A lot of colorful clothing, and good energy and great dancing. And of course there are all these beautiful female bodies, wearing very little in the way of clothing, and even changing on stage!... full review

Cultural relevance? - OMG - definitely! Extremely well done. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 pieces presented and left wishing for more. Bravo Megill and Co.... full review
