“Jody’s re-envisioning of Loie Fuller’s work and her own dynamic choreography was a tremendous treat for the senses. In her two solos and in dancing with her company, the audience was captivated by the velvety richness of color and movement as the dancers swirled yards and yards of silk with effortless ease. Our audience was completely enthralled by the sheer beauty of the presentation and the endless possibilities that fabric, movement and music together can offer. I think, if the modern dance pioneer Loie Fuller were there that evening she would have approved and even been enchanted. I continue to hear wonderful comments about the concert.
Jody Sperling was a delight to work with from beginning to end. I have great admiration for her style which is filled with creative imaginations and a fluid strength at its core. She also brings a joie de vivre to her choreography which is evident in the dances performed with a set of unique skills by her dance company members. In person, Jody is well organized, charming and professional, her competence as a dancer, choreographer and a scholar came through in all the activities she presented for us. From all aspects, the entire residency with Time Lapse was an unqualified success. ” -Ranjanaa Devi, Director of Asian Arts & Culture program, Fine Arts Center. University of Massachusetts Amherst
“Every component of the residency was an unqualified success. The range of Time Lapse Dance’s offerings touched our community on many levels. The performance was outstanding, and I continue to hear from audience members how captivating and hypnotizing they found it. The performance at the Lied Center broke an IAS record with 920 spectators, who came out on a rainy night no less.”-Rhonda Garelick, Curator & Director of the Interdisciplinary Arts Symposium
“From exquisite re-invisionings of the works of dance pioneer Loie Fuller to the presentation of her own dynamic and original contemporary choreography, Jody Sperling and Time Lapse Dance provide a broad palette of possibilities, including master classes, lectures, and performance activities to audiences of all ages. In addition to her talents as a choreographer of stunningly beautiful dance presentations, Ms. Sperling is a delightful person to work with: responsible, efficient, and well organized. I have the utmost respect for the quality of her work, the professionalism of the company, and her ability to work with presenters to create vibrant residencies tailored to the interests of each community.” – Cynthia Williams, Professor of Dance, Hobart & William Smith Colleges
“What an absolute pleasure it was to host Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance at the Westminster Arts Center at Bloomfield College this year. It was the second time we’ve had Ms. Sperling . . . Audiences were mesmerized by the amazing spectacle of dance and light . . . I cannot thank this company enough for bringing such a unique performance to our space and for being so easy to work with. From the planning with their designers working with our tech director to the exuberance each dancer brought with the, it was an enjoyable experience from beginning to end. I don’t believe I could recommend this company enough to others (and have done just that with colleagues that I know at other arts centers). I strongly and highly suggest that anyone looking for a dance program would include Time Lapse Dance in their line-up. This company is top-notch and deserves to be seen by many.” —Gregory Allen, Managing Director Westminster Arts Center
“It was our great pleasure to have Jody Sperling/Time Lapse Dance . . . Our community is still talking about their stunning performance. . . It was an undulating, iridescent, captivating program of modern dance that enthralled the audience.” -Carrie Clark, Maryhill Museum of Art
