“The dancers are incredible, kind and humble. They don’t look down their noses, arrogance doesn’t exist. That’s so obvious, and so rare,” says Melody O’Neill, Whim W’Him‘s patron services manager. It’s certainly been my experience as well with this company since its inception in 2009. And it is their strong personal empathy, along with the open, inquiring minds that complement their physical talents and skill, which will carry these dancers through present hard times and help them flower more than ever as artists in the future.
