Dancin' No. 6

"Above it all, is Miss Reinking. There are other first-rate performers, but she is clearly the star. Miss Reinking possesses a number of striking attributes: Her legs are very long and she is very beautiful, but mostly it is that everything she has dances—her hair, her teeth, her expression Her face dances and this sets her off from a lot of merely very good dancers in the show whose faces merely concentrate."

—Jennifer Dunning, New York Times, 1978.
