"Sachiyo Ito, an expressive and powerful performer, is, at the same time, touchingly delicate."

The Village Voice

“Ito has achieved mastery of [traditional] forms, absorbing the necessary discipline and techniques. Ito was a model of control and refinement.”

Dance Magazine

"Miss Ito appeared to mix styles, combining Japanese formality with the fluidity of western modern dance. Movements were delicate and it seemed as if Miss Ito were about to dissolve into mist with each step."

The New York Times

"Sachiyo Ito is a graceful dancer/choreographer/teacher of quiet power."

Attitude Winter 2002

"Sachiyo Ito has a rare understanding of the culture of her country, and she is able to intrigue and enchant with her knowledge and her artistry"
