Nancy Lima Dent's Concerto Grosso was very well received at the festival and was described by Herbert Whittaker in The Globe and Mail as "the most successful of the group numbers." He wrote of the festival in general that it was "not too-modern modern dance." Of other works he wrote, "Several vivid dance images remain in the mind, most of them solo. Among the most striking were those of Bianca Rogge's Wigman-like Infinity and her two-headed mime, Fear; Yone Kvietys' theatrical expression of Gershwin's Summertime and her ingenious dance on a chair, In One Spot; Nancy Lima Dent's marching piece to The Battle Hymn of the Republic."
