From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:

Quote:
Rice ballets boil over with virtuosity in Cambridge

Every so often, one encounters contemporary ballets with evident structure, danced with exacting intent.

The program offered by Rebecca Rice Dance last night at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center was a revelation, intriguing and sophisticated from start to finish, and proof that Rice is one of this area's most imaginative and downright solid choreographers.

From Thea Singer in the Boston Globe:

Quote:
Rice's artistic quirkiness elevates her classical style

Choreographer Rebecca Rice makes serious, intensely musical dances that are full of promise. Firmly rooted in classical ballet, her movement style exudes an earthiness and a sweep that recalls the ethos of modern-dance pioneers Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, as well as that of Jose Limon, who came along in the 1940s.

In the Boston Phoenix, Marica Siegel reviews last weekend's performance by Rebecca Rice Dance:

Retrievals
Rebecca Rice keeps moving

....
With an unusually eclectic background, Rebecca Rice draws from the theatricality of Denishawn dance, the extroverted skills of ballet, and the physical investment of modern dance. Her work makes me feel I’ve seen those dancer bodies working at their maximum capacity. Equally satisfying is her understanding of form. She doesn’t wander or make you feel the dance can stop any time it runs out of things to do.

Rebecca Rice ready to cause a stir in Hub
.... Tomorrow, Rice offers some of her most important pieces from the past five years, presented as a Boston Marquee event by the Bank of America Celebrity Series at Boston University’s Tsai Performance Center.

“Many people in Boston still haven’t seen my work,” Rice said. “Now I’ll reach a big music audience. I think the Celebrity Series is very focused on classicism, which is very exciting.”

From Richard Dyer in the Boston Globe:
Quote:
Defying gravity, and celebrating it
The Bank of America Celebrity Series confirmed and advanced the status of Rebecca Rice Dance, choreographer and company, by presenting a substantial program of 10 dances Saturday night. ....
Rice has worked in Boston as a teacher, dancer, and choreographer for more than 20 years, and it was easy to see why she has become a local phenomenon -- her work whirls entertainingly back and forth across the border between ballet and modern dance. It both defies gravity and celebrates it.

From Debra Cash in the Boston Phoenix:
Quote:
Rewriting histories
Rennie Harris and Rebecca Rice

....
Rice’s æsthetic is firmly anchored in the mid 20th century. Her dancers are poised, not messy. Dissonance is a chance to indulge in some post-Balanchine foot flexing. Fall and recovery, the action at the center of Humphrey/Limón technique, creates a steady, metronomic pulse that pulls the dancers into some unspecified state of delight.
