The Sleeping Beauty 
“Shino Mori and Robert Stephen pawed and shimmied their shoulders to perfection as the Pussycats.” The National Post, 2012 


“Mori and Ebe had a believable connection, which made them a pleasure to watch. They played off each other’s energy and the choreography included some unorthodox partnering where Mori supported Ebe.” Danceviewtimes, 2011
