'On her website,.., King quotes a passage from the movie Coach Carter (2005), which references spiritual teacher and author Marianne Williamson's book, A Return to Love, in response to the question of fear. It says, in part, As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence liberates others. King is recognized for multi-nuanced abstract and literal choreographic storytelling, which seek truths that liberate. In that quest, she is fearless'. - Bonnie Rosenstock/Explore Dance
'......certain choreographers and their charges stood out as unique. .... Joyce King's "LISTen (an excerpt)", a large ensemble flight into the realm of the imagination, felt like a force of nature.'-Jamie Townsend/Explore Dance
'the works in "UnWrapped" are provocative, emotional and daring.' -Marilynn Larkin / Explore Dance
'Most people know me as an actress, but the truth of it is that I started off as a dancer so my heart is always first and foremost in the dance world. The most powerful women are up there and it's just an empowering dance company...... The choreography is so fluid, so great, so special.'- Ilene Kristen/Actress, ABC's 'General Hospital', 'One Life To Live', 'Ryan's Hope'
I was literally mesmerized by Joyce King's choreography and the incredible skill of her dancers. I could not stop feeling like I was witnessing something very very important. I cannot wait to see them again.-Juliet Cummings, Dir., The Mark Shaw Photographic Archive
'It's been several weeks since I attended the JKing dance concert, and yet each piece remains vividly etched in my mind, which says a lot about the impact of these poignant vignettes..... I was spellbound. Beautiful work!' -Rosalinde Block, Author, NYC
'King has given the little girls inside us a chance to scream without uttering a sound, beautiful, breathtakingly beautiful.' -Maria Gentile, Singer/Songwriter, NYC
