Keaton in the Press

"Among the different country’s variations, stand-outs include... the Arabian Dance, danced by Monika Haczkiewicz, Keaton Leier, Moises Martin and Jonathan Philbert. The Arabian Dance, while being the longest in length, was also the most intriguing with its snake-like movement and the obvious connection between the dancers." - Allison Gupton of Dance Informa

In a New York Times article, then Philadelphia Flyers hockey player and Keaton's brother, Taylor Leier, gushed, “You should see him: He can do the splits up the wall... That’s how strong he is in his lower body.” - Tal Pinchevsky of The New York Times

See Keaton perform this weekend during our season finale program!
