"Whether performing a stylized Kirov specialty or a home-grown essay... Universal Ballet of Korea has one impressive advantage over nearly every American company. All the dancers embody the identical concept of classical style, the identical sense of placement, line, technical finesse. Whatever their individual talent or training, they speak the same movement language - an amazing accomplishment."
Roger Salas, El Pais, Madrid

Zsuzsa Kaan, Art of Dance, Budapest
"The miracle in the history of dance has occurred: the ideal beauty conceived in the Russian ballet theater at the end of the 19th century is adopted and shown to the world by Koreans at the end of the 20th century."
George Jackson, The Washington
"The women aim for lyricism and extended linearity, and the men for heroic strength. It is unusual to see a male corps with such cohesion and cushioned power as this company's."
