"Drumming life into the old Opera House...and excitement into the hearts of our TI elementary students! I had the pleasure to attend the DrumatiX show here at the Clayton Opera House accompanying two special ed students on Thursday (3/14/2019). I was initially a bit worried how the student I was with would be able to handle sitting in his seat throughout the whole show considering he is sensitive to sound. However, after only a few minutes it became clear that my worries were completely unfounded as the student took his earmuffs off so he could get more involved in the music. Noa and her troupe are very talented musicians, but more important to me, they do care about their audience and involve them to make sure that they have a wonderful experience. Right from the start they included the kids in their program making it a fun, interactive performance that I'm sure will leave a lasting impression on all that attended... thank you so much!!"

“DrumatiX performed for Artistic Dance Conservatory at our annual Gala in Massachusetts. They were an excellent addition to our show. The audience was excited to hear and see such an energized and vibrant performance unlike any of of our other guests. If you have not seen their work you should. It is original and fun and full of life and inspiration."

"Noa and her dancers held our audience in thrall for a full 45 minutes with complex tap choreography and witty percussive techniques. The performance was, in a word, electrifying. Standing ovations are rare at a senior living campus, - even one with residents as energetic and independent as ours – not for lack of appreciation, but because getting older just brings its limitations. Those limitations vanished at the end of DrumatiX’s performance when our residents and guests rose to their feet in a rousing and vocal ovation.
I can’t find enough superlatives to describe this performance, or to describe what a pleasure it was to work with Noa Barankin. Everybody should have a chance to see DrumatiX!"
