"Maya Sheridan, is not only a passionate dancer and choreographer but a wonderful collaborator. I thoroughly enjoyed creating with her on the City of Sydney Chinese New Year Parades 2008, 2009 which I directed. If it wasn't for Maya's talents and Dance Studio 101, my Parade would not have had the impact and success. I long for the day to work with Maya and Dance Studio 101 again."

Maya was a muse for my 2010 costume collection and I was honored to have her open the show at the Utzon room at the Sydney Opera House.

She is a true professional and I was so grateful for what she added to the experience."

With pressing time constraints, she created something truly unique and category breaking for the brand. She is a joy to know and one of the most talented people I have ever had the pleasure in meeting.
