Surrender scores as it clearly expresses the build-up to young love. There is no better ride.
-Voice of Dance
[McIntyre’s] witty Surrender evoked all the discomforts of prom night and puppy love with wonderfully dramatic dancing from Chanel DaSilva and Jason Hartley.
Surrender traces the evolution of young love. There is shyness, flirtation, doubt, and happiness . . .
It all ends up fitting somehow, and that's the sweet point of this often wonderfully goofy dance: that convention may be safe, but it's not necessarily satisfying.
-The Boston Globe
This second viewing, with McIntyre's own company, reinforced my initial impression. Trey McIntyre is a supremely talented choreographer - a technical master with something important to say.
-The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
It is one of the world's oldest stories — perhaps one of three universal plots that constitute the whole of literature. But McIntyre's is both yesterday's and today's, subtly nuanced by these exceptional dancers, and taken into themselves.
-The Berkshire Eagle
Attraction, resistance, ambush, and finally surrender.
