"A woman warrior in a bright turquoise leotard"
Wendy Perron's Best Performers of 2015
Dance Magazine Online
"Fearon tunes us into the new slant on movement....working her body as if forces inside it were migrating here and there..."
“Fearon dons bright blue in “Non Locomotor.” She is fearless, smooth and steadfast with every move as the sole woman, backed by three men (Grenek, Sciscione and Tuason). The men manipulate her limb by limb into wicked contortions and she handles it; she claims the spotlight to the end.”
Charmaine Patricia Warren
New York Amsterdam News
“...the standout this year is the veteran Petronio company member Davalois Fearon...whether spotlit in Non Locomotor or flying through space in Locomotor, her clarity and sharpness of movement this year is phenomenal. “
“Dressed in turquoise by Mr. Rodriguez, Davalois Fearon, a dancer of remarkable spring who is able to initiate effortless, floating jumps…”
Wall Street Journal
“The attack and sweep shown by Davalois Fearon and Jaqlin Medlock are especially fine”
The New York Times
"...extraordinary Davalois Fearon. Caressing her body and dancing with voluptuous power"
The Village Voice
“The gorgeous Davalois Fearon is a cog in a human sex machine"
“Davalois Fearon was both electric and explosive in her movements”
White Bird Dance

This Week In New York
"Long after much vigorous ensemble dancing, Davalois Fearon snapped me into high alert with her subtle tension shifts from taut to relaxed. The breath-like sensuality of her dancing was so riveting"
The Dance Enthusiast
"There are vivid moments of full choreographic clarity where dancers hone and harness the power within Petronio’s skillful steps. We witness the root of Petronio’s stated choreographic interest as his dancers “slip into heightened, intuitive states.” A scene featuring a ferocious Davalois Fearon leaping over, sliding under, around and pushing through a male entourage is one of these"
"Standout performance was given by Davalois Fearon in a quartet with three men whom she commanded to assist in her every move as she is manipulated from one lift to another."
"Each of the dancers is stunning and the technical fortitude and presence of Emily Stone, Jaqlin Medlock, Josh Green, Davalois Fearon and NIcholas Scisone is impressive."
Theater is Easy
"Featuring the astonishing Davalois Fearon spiraling in a shredded white dress"
"Davalois Fearon’s final flat-footed solo in fringed white coverup is wonderful"
Veteran Petronio muses Gino Grenek and Amanda Wells set the tone with Davalois Fearon, Barrington Hinds, Julian De Leon, and newer-comers
"However, the work is not without tenderness, as when the quartet of Davalois Fearon..."
"Watching Davalois Fearon spin across the studio at breakneck speed in "For Today I am a Boy," a section of "This is the Story of a Girl in a World" set to a melancholy song by Antony, one wonders how a dancer of any age handles Mr. Petronio's fierce, quicksilver choreography."
“Fearon makes an impressive solo appearance”
