'But, while the Man in Black probably didn’t have the graceful soloist Shelley Siller in mind when he penned “Get Rhythm,” audiences are fortunate that choreographer Kimberly Parmer did. Siller’s skill in seamlessly combining contemporary ballet and tap is matched only by her cheeky charm as she winks and taps her way through the number, daring anyone to say that modern dance and country music don’t mix.'

"Capital Fringe marks the premiere of the first composition, Renforcé, which features music by Olafur Arnalds and Lindsey Sterling and showcases artful choreography by Shelley Siller. The piece contributes to the entire performance’s overarching theme of metaphorical journeys by bringing to life, and to the stage, the process of finding personal strength.

Inner strength is beautifully transmuted into physical strength by dancers Catherine Roth, Christine Sawyer, and Kathleen Weitz, who demonstrate incredible skill as they gracefully execute numerous lifts and pieces of choreography that seem almost more gymnastic than balletic. The music, a dubstep remix of a classical tune, perfectly represents MOVEiUS’ philosophy and the style of contemporary ballet in general: all the rigor and training of tradition, but made relevant through innovative modern reinterpretation."
