“.. Addo is the showstopper, a short, round woman about as far from the idealized image of a dancer as can be imagined. Yet it was her full-bodied embrace of the joy and mischievous spirit of the dance – a one-woman celebration, it was – that imprinted itself on the memory. And she can move.” -The Portland Tribune
