"Another notable solo was Lisa Botalico's 'Solea' which, began as a
lamentation and proceeded into a dance of pride and defiance."
(Jack Anderson, NY Times)

"Botalico passed through a variety of rhythms and moods in her solo 'Cantinas.'
In sequence, she emphasized the swaying of her hips, the curling tracery of her arms, starkly dramatic poses and a rapid 'zapateado.'
Finally, hitching up her skirts, she became a saucy one woman fiesta."
(Star Ledger)

"Lisa Botalico was the essence of fiery passion, first playing the role of a slyly sultry seductress, then becoming the personification of a flickering flame."
(Asbury Park Press)

"Bravo Lisa Bottalico, in an applauditissimo 'Solea'; she made the stage tremble."
(Mario Fratti, Il Progresso)
