“Stunning is the first word that comes to mind when describing Good Morning Mr Gershwin. From French company Compagnie Montalvo-Hervieu comes a contemporary dance piece that entertains, excites and exhilarates. The company have brought their modern dance moves and mixed it with the great music of George Gershwin.  Their wide and varied styles manage to fit effortlessly with Gershwin’s music, which for the most part remains unchanged. ”
