"As for his relationship with the dancers, Paciotti says she hopes they will respect him. 'He is kind, clear and helpful' in the studio, she says. 'Not critical. Not hyper. Just straight forward and calm. You couldn’t ask for a better quality in a director or ballet master. He’s going to be a fantastic teacher, too.'" - Gillian Anne Renault, ArtsATL
