“Campbell is slender and elegant, with an ease of delivery. Everything about his dancing is fluid and effortless… his movement is clean and precise, which makes for a very satisfying performance”

“Skylar Campbell, plucked from the corps and a decade younger, offers a different dramatic perspective. His is a Nijinsky of childlike innocence, conveyed in dancing of unaffected, almost angelic purity. He simply breaks your heart.”
