"See Ken dance, if you possibly can. His dancing is always poetry in motion." - Susan Cushion, Chairperson, Stanford Dance Department
 

". . . When Ken and Mariela danced the Argentine Tango, they had the entire audience spellbound." - Dance Critique, Stanford University Dance Department








"It's somewhat incredible to watch him leaping and turning in the air. He has the cushiony spring of all good male dancers, lingering as if suspended. He partners his ballerinas with commanding elan. Ken Delmar is truly an enormously gifted talent." - Oakland Tribune

". . . A luminous performance featuring Ken Delmar, a superlative talent." - San Francisco Chronicle









"There were no budding Nureyevs on view in the performances--yes, come to think of it perhaps one, Ken Delmar, is a micro-Nureyev with a sense of style, marvelous coordination, and an enviable ability to move gracefully and manfully. In the familiar impressionistic ballet "Afternoon of a Faun," he is the barechested, sensual cervine spirit playing a Nijinsky role. In an angular, expressionistic modernism called "The Door," a Jerome Robbins, he is the lover-flame who dries his moth-love to immolation." - Oakland Tribune
 
"Ken Delmar danced the Peasant Pas de Deux from Giselle with compelling virtuosity. His stage presence is spellbinding and his techniques is sure and strong." - San Francisco Chronicle



". . . everything considered, was marvelous-especially the brilliant Ken Delmar in the Peasant Pas de Deux of Giselle-Delmar is very special indeed. He's got it." - San Francisco Chronicle



". . . The Faun, danced by Ken Delmar, was animal and mortal, child and man--an amazingly subtle amalgam. And the duet for Delmar and Gretchen Stock was choreographed and danced like the vibration from a plucked harpstring." - Doris Hering Dance Magazine
