"“Keep her safe..” is a major accomplishment for Wan-Chao. It is a haunting piece....Chang succeeds as an innovator of fusion forms and as a performer. Her dancing is clear, subtly nuanced and well executed."

~Joanna G. Harris, Culturevulture.net, 2010


"Wan-Chao is at the forefront of this promising new genre [Ethno-Contemporary Dance]"

~Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian, 2010

"...the graceful arms and gestures of Wan Chao Chang illustrated the narration via silhouette, torso reclining, swaying in memory, compliant, yearning;...Wan Chao emerged once or twice, moving with her characteristic slender grace."

~Renee Renouf, Ballet.co Magazine, 2010


"...Whatever the origin, Chang’s performance was distinctive, graceful and gently persuasive."

~Renee Renouf, Ballet.co Magazine, 2009


"A trio of women in white danced an impeccably synchronized choreography of glances and head gestures. Choreographed by Wan-Chao Chang whose extensive cross-cultural training includes Balinese dance and music, There was like something that Ruth St. Denis dreamed of making but lacked the technical training to manifest. The work recalled a women's Modern dance chorus from the 1920's or 30's updated with deeply embodied non-Western movement that could only be possible with the cultural migrations and fusions of the past thirty years."

~Keith Hennessy, CultureVulture.net, 2008


"Long, sheer, and white head scarves and skirts lent a visually pleasing presence..."

Gary Peterson, Minnesota Mist, 2008
