“Marston fuses ballet with contemporary dance styles and her moves are imaginative, technically rigorous and filled with tension between a fluid lyricism and sharp attack. Her work transcends the chocolate-box prettiness that can be a pitfall for ballet companies, and here the dance shifts between being witty, fierce and, at times, truly lovely.”
The Metro, September 2008
