“Dayanisma is a talented troupe whose heart is in their dance and passion is delighting the audience with their art.

They are consistently punctual, dependable, and always professional. They arrive prepared to perform and ready to entertain. I always look forward to working with them and can never resist watching them on stage as they are truly unique and so much fun!” - Tori Taylor, Stage Manager, ATS®  Reunion

One of the things I love about seeing Dayanisma take the stage is that they are always so JOYFUL and prepared.

Their technical brilliance and mastery of their dance are only superseded by their genuine love for one another and the audience.They always delight and often surprise the audience with their creativity. Truly an aspirational and inspirational troupe! - Cat Ellen, ATS® Reunion Producer
