"What impresses me most about Jeremy is his very clear vision as an artist and citizen. Jeremy's goal is to celebrate human diversity not only by creating opportunity for dancers of color, but more importantly to create ballets and dances that tell stories about people of color. It is not enough to incorporate and highlight diversity within our dancing ranks, the ballet and dance cannon needs to expand by including more stories that resonate with and are about people of color."
—Meg Booth, The Kennedy Center
