"Zazel O'Garra is a true inspiration! It begins with Ms. O'Garra's personal story of her tenacity and overcoming obstacles. What she has created with her company is equally inspiring. She and her company embody the joy of movement and tell an authentic human story with their bodies. It makes you rethink your perceptions about what is dance and what makes a dancer. The dancers in the ZCO Dance Project dance with their full potential, and they express so much more with their bodies and spirits than a perfect pirouette or arabesque can. My friends and I cried tears of joy during the performance."
- Sherry Kohn, Nurse Practitioner
"Joyful and uplifting, O’Garra’s Company, ZCODANCEPROJECT, confirms what it means to be human. Whether you are part of the disability community or just looking for an inspirational theatrical dance performance, you will find this a not-to-be-missed experience."
-Vivian Cary Jenkins, Inside/Out: Voices from the Disability Community
I met Zazel a few years ago, when we both happened to be eating lunch at the same cafe, and we started talking. I was immediately struck by the light in her eyes, her passion and zest, her extraordinary story, and her courageous re engagement with dance, overcoming her physical limitations. I was also impressed with her advocacy work and determination. I subsequently went to two dance performances of her group and was uplifted and inspired by the dancers who expressed their joys and sorrows with grace and beauty, through this fantastic medium. They brought their abilities and their disabilities to the dance floor. I came home thinking, "If they can do this, then what can I do within my own life, with my own challenges?"

"I have attended every amazing performance featuring the ZCO Dance Project. What an incredible dance company spearheaded by a wonderful and selfless talent, Zazel O'Garra. It is a showcase of courage, vulnerability and trust. An audacious collaboration of strength and freedom. As each artist shares their story and wears their joy, each member of the audience is challenged to a deeper understanding of their own humanity. The ZCO Dance Project is awe-inspiring! And I look forward to their next performance as they, once again, invite us to love one another, soul-to-soul."
