Kelly Hartog, Los Angeles Blueprint, September 16, 2008 "Move and Be Moved" By combining text study and personal writing exercises, Hodos draws out people’s reactions – philosophical, general, and technical, along with their emotional and sensory responses to the text being studied, while simultaneously introducing participants to the tools they need to create the movement.
Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, March 18, 2008 "Moved by Torah" I can’t say that I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the creative processes inherent in dance, and it was very neat to get to have a glimpse into that. I walked out of there energized in a way that I am not nearly enough these days. All of you reading this, go hire Andrea! She is dazzlingly gifted at taking things we’re used to seeing and spinning them on their head, literally.
David Suissa, Jewish Journal, Dec 20, 2007 "Torah That Moves" I just love that there are Jews out there who are always trying to enhance the Jewish experience -- Jews, God bless them, who teach us that if we want the Torah to move us, sometimes we just have to move with it. Ruth Andrew Ellenson, Jewish Journal, Jan. 6, 2005 "Choreographer Puts Kick in Torah Tales" By offering witty and thoughtful choreography to punctuate and play with the situations Hodos finds herself in, (Cutting My Hair in Jerusalem) also offers a vivid example of the use of dance in storytelling to offer multiple levels of meaning.
