“Dreamy romance…bewitching moods…sensual energies…”

- Backstage

 

“‘Eyes of the World’ dared to tread where many history books still refuse to go – the issue of slavery and the rape of a people.  The message was loud and clear.  My ancestors screamed in my heart and in my soul.  Viewing this holocaust of slavery struck a cord of agony that as an African American woman, I felt so deeply it echoed silently through the theater.”

- Impressions

 

“The choreography throughout the entire show was flawless.  Kudos to the choreographer, Roxanna [Lewis]…Standing ovations and cheers from the audience made it obvious that I was not the only person enjoying this production.”

- The Banner (West Side Story)

 

“The highlight of the program came in the next offering.  Ms. [Lewis] gave her interpretation of the Bachianas Brazialieras No. 5 by Villa-Lobos in “Letters of the Heart,” which she choreographed herself.  She is an accomplished modern dancer, both lyrical and strong…”

- The Citizen

 

“The stars of “West Side Story” are Roxanna [Lewis] and Arlene Hawks…Full of energy, passion and choreography that will knock your socks off, this is Surflight’s best production this year…”

- The Press of Atlantic City

 

“Oklahoma! A brilliant combination of music and theatre… [Roxanna Lewis] is a wizard at working with a small stage…We especially liked the special treatment she has given to “Out of My Dreams” for a very dramatic effect.”

“South Pacific…Magical choreography and energetic dances by Roxanna Lewis...”
