"Connecting with Assis was the best thing I could have done in my position as a theatre producer and a mentor of young theatre artists. Assis consistently went above and beyond, whether it was making unscheduled time for me or my students, or connecting me to arts organizations, producers and artists. She offers a wealth of knowledge and invaluable advice, and her compassion for the struggle and challenges of a first-time producer at EdFringe was a life preserver in a massive ocean of unknowns. "
Kelly Daniels - Director, Creator, Educator
"Assis has an incredible amount of knowledge and expertise in the wider arts sector. As somebody coming from an arts organisation I had much to learn and understand about the freelance world in dance. Thanks to Assis’ mentoring I have already learnt so much, I feel more confident in my capabilities and know that I can always turn to her for guidance."
Stina Quagebeur, Associate Choreographer & First Soloist, English National Ballet
"As a mentor, Assis understood who I was and helped me grow as a choreographer and widen my horizons. Not only has she an impressive network but her expertise helps me keep my eyes open not to miss any opportunity and establish a strategy to keep growing. I feel so well taken care of thanks to her availability and kindness."
Constant Vignier - Choreographer & Dancer, Scottish Ballet
