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