What People Are Saying

Governor Dannel P. Malloy
Governor of Connecticut
After Governor Malloy attended the performance of Windows at York CI with First Lady and Greater Hartford Arts Council Executive Director Cathy Malloy, the Governor acknowledged the women for their courage in sharing their stories and concluded by saying that ” …in your writings, in your speech, in your dance, in your overall performance–you reflect the humanity that is within each of you and within a broader society…congratulations on your success in this performance…and thank you, Judy (Dworin).”.

Sharma Howard
Hartford Courant
“In some ways, Dworin represents the Connecticut dance scene today, sailing in many different directions, finding voice and purpose in uncharted territory.”

Carol Terry
Director of the Greater Hartford Dance Umbrella
Tonight’s performance of The Witching Hour was truly exceptional. You all reminded us that dance is ephemeral unless we keep doing it..….The audience was captivated, holding its breath for the next movement of dancers in this new space, seamlessly breathing together and each breath and movement contributed meaningfully to the telling of this story. And we all breathed in the spoken and sung words as part of the magic of movement. Read more
