Choreographed by Amanda Cox and her dancers, 'Let Go' uses modern dance to share the self-doubt and personal insecurities of young women today, as well as their potential journey to confidence and joy when they learn to take responsibility for their decisions and actions.

According to TCPalm, part of the USA Today Network, "The show breaks open into a place of wisdom, and the joy, flirtatiousness and sheer fun that follows, leaving all smiling, basking in the traits that bolster self-esteem."
