REVIEWS - PRESS

"Lindroos' solos find their inspiration on in folk music, different cultures
and urban styles, and they are interesting in their modern approach.
The seamless negotiation of song, body music and tap show a particular skill."
,
Turun Sanomat

"The Man of Finnish Tap",
Helsingin Sanomat

"Jussi Lindroos, a Finn, has the lightest of whispering techniques",
The Financial Times

"Like tap itself -- born in early America of many disparate traditions --
the art of 21st-century European tap dancers reflects a world in which old and new are constantly blending, and fracturing.
Whether it is a young Finnish dancer like Jussi Lindroos experimenting with Nordic folk culture, or a Russian dancer using tap to push
the boundaries of circus acts, international artists are aggressively mixing their own traditions into an American form."
,
The New York Times

"--it's different from New York: when I look out of the window I see forest. Nature is really strong in the Finnish culture
-- I hear the same jazz tune in New York, in a jazz club, and then I might be listening to the same jazz tune here -- there's a lot of snow,
not much people around, the sun is setting", Jussi Lindroos in Whiteout by Claudia La Rocco, WNYC.org 93.9fm
