Palm Beach Daily News critic Demetrius Klein noted, “Gotta hand it to them: 10 Hairy Legs show what modern dance should be. The all-New Jersey based, all-male dance company 10 Hairy Legs showcases, by far, the best American male modern dancers one could have the good fortune of seeing these days. Palm Beach audiences were indeed fortunate to have that opportunity this weekend at the Kravis Center Rinker Playhouse." – January 2018.
A Silent Auction to benefit the company will take place that evening in the lobby outside Loree Dance Theatre. Featured items include original artwork inspired by the company by Zachary Z. Handler and Stanley Pink, tickets to NJ theaters, restaurant packages, hand made Roku items by potter Ann Tsubota and much, much more.
