"GOTTA DANCE is inspirational, life affirming and ultmately just plain joy filled! I was smiling and cheering the whole time!" - Lesley Ann Warren


"Bravo. A complete and total home run!!! Dori topped herself, and it screams out to be a series. And I want to play "Betty/Betsy" or Peggy Byrne. Wow, what parts!" - Joan Van Ark


"An evening with Carol Channing is always special. The film, "Gotta Dance," by Dori Bernstein depicts the role of dance in the lives of The Young and The Rest-of-Us in a very entertaining manner. Don't miss this! It will make you cry, laugh and most of all, smile." - Kate Linder


"If you feel like you haven't got "it" anymore, go see "Gotta Dance"!! After you see, "Gotta Dance" I think you will agree with me, those senior citizens ROCK!....and HIP HOP!!!! Bravo!" - Tippi Hedren


"How exciting it was to hang out with Carol Channing, Tippi Hedren, and Mr. Universe! That was definitely the most fun I've ever had at an event. And I absolutely loved the movie, I thought it was so fun and very inspiring--it made me want to jump out of my seat and dance! My agent and I want to go take hip-hop classes now." :) - Romi Dames


"GOTTA DANCE is incredible! It proves that you can enjoy life at any age. This was the first time I recall seeing an audience give a movie a standing ovation." - Roland Kickinger


"Ohhhh, Dori! She is so wonderful! GOTTA DANCE is just so much fun. I got to Rap with LL Cool Jay on the TONY Awards, so watching these talented seniors Hip Hop was no real surprise to me. After all it is the first 80 years that are the hardest. YEAH!" - Carol Channing
