"Manzanales’ Con Brazos Abiertos is an exceptional, heart-tugging beauty..." - LA Times

"Sor Juana is a must see." - Critical Dance

"Paloma Querida is a visual masterpiece..." - Chicago Tribune

"Ballet Hispánico has a real jewel in Michelle Manzanales’s “Con Brazos Abiertos,” one that deserves to be seen by a wider audience. It’s not often that a dance manages to capture our hybrid American nature with such a light touch." - New York Times

"Ms. Manzanales’s [Hope is the Thing with Feathers] sends [the dancers] over the stage as if impelled by a summer breeze, building and sustaining a momentum that beguiles with its lightness and fleetness as might a feather teasing and tickling the senses."

- Wall Street Journal

"Manzanales' "Sugar in the Raw" -- with its hypnotic movement motifs, its use of space and masterful and could easily became one of the troupe's signature pieces." - Chicago Sun-Times
