"Janis Brenner’s duet for Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen, “The Awkward Stage” was performed to a Mozart aria.  The movements included soft break dancing, jiggling legs and entertaining gestures that matched the trills and grace notes of the aria sung by Kathleen Battle. Ms. Brenner managed to create a charming relationship."
