determined to push female creativity to the forefront of dance"
Culture Whisper, Teresa Guerreiro (UK)
"Avatâra is a delightful dancer, able to embody both elasticity
and roughness with power and conviction; irresistibly alluring"
Laura Dodge (Dance Critic)
"Highly intelligent, creative and full of vitality"
Teresa Guerreiro (CultureWhisper)
"riveting perfectly-calibrated solo 'angel', there is something mimetic about it" Donald Hutera (Dance Writer UK)
"Excellent Provisional Landscapes prog at Sadler's Wells Lilian Baylis: hard-core & thought-out. Congratulations! " @Donald Hutera

Graham Watts (Londondance)
"What I like of AVA Dance Company is Avatâra's intelligence, wit; there's purpose to moves instead of arbitrariness or excess" @Donald Hutera
"Ayuso is clearly comfortable working in a neoclassical language and with Evidencia she stakes a claim to be in the sightlines of ballet companies looking for inspirational women choreographers"
Graham Watts (Dancetabs London)
"Evidencia, by Avatâra Ayuso, was one of the night’s highlights. Ayuso showed a strong and original command of her craft"
Donald Hutera (Londondance)
"Avatâra Ayuso’s work conjures up a visceral strength of conviction in her practice” Antonio Molina (Spain NOW!)
"Undoubtedly captivating" Laura Dodge (DanceMusings)
Ayuso embodies a powerful sexuality that feels both enticing and dangerous; it is impossible to take your eyes off this effervescent siren” .
Troy Holmes (Broadway Baby)
“Ayuso makes use of a wide choreographic material which she manages to blend in a unique way... the authenticity of the movements and images convince us completely” Boris Michael Gruhl (Tanznetz)
"The two most polished pieces both came from the fertile mind of Avatâra Ayuso. In constant conflict with its deliberately infuriating voiceover, the astonishing Estela Merlos contorted her body into all sorts of vicious positions. Balikbayan grabbed the attention and kept it rapt". Gerald Davis (Showtime)
