Press Quotes
“Majcen’s the kind of dancer you can’t stop watching: Her exquisite technique is matched by a
spellbinding presence. Whether she’s slapping the floor or firing off an above-the-head jeté, she’s in
complete command. It’s only when other dancers join her onstage that you realize she’s hardly more than five feet tall."
 - Elizabeth Schwyzer, Santa Barbara Independent

"Di tutt’altra natura femminile la bionda coda di capelli slovena Mojca Majcen: un po’ mantide un po’ trapezista da circo, tra attrezzature da palestra e cappelli da mago, la bravissima Mojca Majcen si dimena instancabile per l’ossessivo arrangiamento balcanico del Bolero"
