Mr. Westfield recently performed with Ballet Frontier in Seoul, South Korea for a special gala performance honoring the former Artistic Director of Universal Ballet Company, Roy Tobias.

"As they navigate through a variety of fascinating partnering choreography, one cannot help but marvel at each dancer’s development and progress. Moore demonstrates a compelling fluidity, while Westfield stuns with effortlessly controlled leaps. A few years ago they would not have looked as polished, as captivating, and so utterly engrossed in their characters. While they’ve both exhibited commendable performances over the years, they deliver something truly remarkable this night." - Cheryl Callon, Theatre Jones
