Reviews include:

The Portland Press Herald, Steve Feeney, Sept. 13, 2004 "Jill Spiewak Eng danced in two of the best works of the evening. 'Untold,' choreographed by (Christien) Polos...this work had the balance and compositional clarity that raises the art of dance to a higher level. Eng got a deserved ovation for an exceptional bit of work."

The Spectator (Durham, NC), Viki Atkinson, March 6, 1996 "Eng is a strong dancer, with a very pleasing, unforced quality to her dancing, and her execution of Griffith's choreography was clear and expressive."

Alan Hall, Columnist, Chapel Hill, NC, March 11, 1994 "Eng's slow and evocative dance gave all the impression of labor without a graphic display; we were left with no doubt of the meaning while marveling at the most effective interpretive line."
