“Vanessa is the heart and soul of the class; the nurturer, the caring presence, the one who tends the spirit - warm, generous, kind.  Her embrace is wide and supportive.  In Bouffon she can’t play monkey tag to save her life but her ardent effort somehow makes us love her even more.   A beauty on stage with a radiance that reaches out beyond the footlights, Vanessa’s dancing has grown by leaps and bounds.  Her poetic, expressive, and probing choreographic work reveals a woman searching to sensitively convey feeling, emotion, and sensation in a true and honest way.  Vanessa is love, passion, and compassion.” - Patricia Fraser, Artistic Director of The Professional Training Program at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre
