"balletLORENT is unique. What lies behind the work is loyalty, commitment and hard work. It’s a company that has huge ambition for its size, which is a testament to Liv. The bulk of the company have known Liv, each other and have danced for the company for a long time. What this creates is a real sense of care and an endless passion to repeatedly create something great and help Liv create the visions she has."
