What they say
Philip brings to the studio all he brought to the stage as an artist: elegance, beauty, focus, and thorough attention to detail. Philip's staging of George Balanchine's Slaughter on Tenth Avenue had the right amount of American jazziness. His work in the studio with the dancers brought out the ballet's Broadway feel and the individual attention he paid each separate cast was indicative of a giving and true professional. He brought out the best in each dancer.Lourdes Lopez

It has been an indescribable pleasure to see Philip develop from a student to a principal dancer to a repetiteur who can so beautifully convey his extensive experience. Philip has worked for Richmond Ballet restaging both the Balanchine and Robbins repertories. He is inspiring, knowledgeable, clear, and demanding while, at the same time, being charming and fun to have around! I recommend him to any school or company without hesitationStoner Winslett
