“Dance Magazine named Miss Yatkin "Top 25 to Watch” and it's easy to see why: she is a fierce and supple performer” – New York Times

“An artist to follow, a woman with deep reserves of feeling and experience and an invigorating, memorable way of expressing them” Washington Post

"Yatkin is an impossible act to follow.” - ChicagoTribune

"Nejla Yatkin doesn't disappear for an instant, not within a role and not under the impact of movement. She's a performer inside and outside, from a piercing gaze to expressive shoulder blades and from the coils of her long black hair to her finger tips and toes. As a dancer, she measures on a major scale, thanks to a strong, long body and the amplitude she sustains. Watching her can become hypnotic, even off stage".
