Apollo

Peter Boal & Company

Chan Hon Goh
“Ms. Goh was light and jazzy as Terpsichore… The crowd gasped in awe at the “swimming” section and the “sunburst” ending of Apollo and appreciated the chance to experience top-flight dance outside of New York City.”

Apollo

The Suzanne Farrell Ballet

Chan Hon Goh
“The fine-boned Chan Hon Goh deserved pride of place as Terpsichore.”

“Apollo dazzles with its images Terpsichore (Chan Hon Goh), her hands cupped tenderly to hold Apollo’s head, then balanced like a boat upon his outstretched neck and head. Goh embodies her muse fully; she dances to her very fingertips, her hand fluttering like butterflies.”
Chan Hon Goh
“As the favored Muse Terpsichore, Goh was uninhibited, animated and equally rhythmically keen.”

Chaconne

The Suzanne Farrell Ballet

Chan Hon Goh
“Goh was beautifully poised throughout, with an especially eerie lightness in “La Sonnambula” (to haunting music by Vittorio Rieti). She is a small-build, delicate dancer, but her range of expression goes far beyond that of a precious daintiness. In “Meditation”, she showed a free-spirited, sensual streak, while in the difficult, off-axis turns and retracted angles of “Chaconne” she was untouchably regal.”
Chan Hon Goh
“The pinnacle of the Suzanne Farrell Ballet’s recent engagement at the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater was George Balanchine’s “Chaconne”, illuminated by the dancing of Peter Boal and Chan Hon Goh who has appeared with the Farrell Ballet before, outdid herself with her freshness, charm, and delicately nuanced phrasing. Dance is tantalizing ephemeral, an art that vanishes in the air even as it is being performed. So the intensity of the moment belonged to those two golden dancers and their memorable performance.”

Cinderella

National Ballet of Canada

Chan Hon Goh
“The exquisite Chan Hon Goh in the title role, moving with the grace of something poured in from a bottle of vintage champagne… fittingly capturing the pent-up energy, the explosive grace, or the cork.”
