"Red Sky is amazing. It was such a pleasure to work with such incredible professionals. The dancers were so exciting to watch and the choreography and music were very inspiring. Bravo! It was wonderful."
– Jack Lenz, Parliament of The World's Religions (Toronto 2018)

“We were honoured and delighted to have Red Sky’s performers at our recent Awards Gala. The dancers provided a moving and powerful reminder that we were gathered on territorial lands. They also brought an energy to our gathering that was second to none.”
- Quinn Ross, President, Ontario Bar Association

"We worked with Red Sky to create the opening experience for our social innovation conference and could not be happier with the performance. From our very first call, they were professional and attentive and worked with us to ensure the piece fit well within our theme. The dancers were exquisite and incredibly well trained, the story, the choreography and music took our audience on a beautiful journey which truly set the stage for our event. Sandra's land acknowledgement was exactly our vision for the opening. We would not hesitate to work with Red Sky again."
- NEMA Productions

"I wanted to reach out to thank you so much for everything! It was an incredible moment when the Red Sky performers came on stage. Our members are still talking about it!"
