Steven Caras

"An extraordinary piece of film making that stands as a testament to a phenomenal artist. It is a brilliant and gripping experience watching his art take shape; journeying both as a dancer and a man."
-- Michael Feinstein, Entertainer

"What a great triumph! Entertaining, emotional, elegant and great fun."
-- Jeff Sagansky, Chairman of Hemisphere Media Capital, and former President of CBS Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment

"As Steven Caras spoke in the film of his passion, commitment, dedication, pain--I felt an intimate understanding of who this great artist is. What a blessing to the world of dance and those of us who love it!"
-- Cathy Rigby, Actress, Gymnast, Motivational Speaker

"Steven and I grew up together on the lawns of the Saratoga Performing Arts Center when he was dancing with New York City Ballet and I was acting with John Houseman's Acting Company. I knew him to be a soulful, beautiful, generous, artistic youth. As a photographer, all of those exemplary qualities have found another conduit. He is a supreme photographer in the ballet world-- passionately underscored in this wonderful film."
-- Patti LuPone, Tony Award-winning performing artist
