‘Constance Deverney, as the Snow Queen, dances with effortless elegance, and her elevation in the batterie and amazing flexibility are a pleasure to watch.’

Peter Darrell's The Nutcracker, Bachtrack, December 2017

'Constance Devernay glinted and shone with glacial, enigmatic charm'

Kenneth MacMillan's The Fairy's Kiss, The Herald, 2017

"Earlier in the week, Constance Devernay had danced Cinderella for the first time, taking ownership of the steps with a quick, bright finesse but underpinning that technique with tremendously expressive acting skills. You felt, with her and through her, the magic of discovering unexpected happiness: a joy to watch."

Christopher Hampson's Cinderella, The Herald, 2015

"Constance Devernay's Sugar Plum Fairy is enchanting and succeeds in outshining the jewel coloured baubles which decorate her realm."

Peter Darrell's The Nutcracker, Ellon Advertiser, January 2015

"Sugar Plum Fairy Constance Devernay looks born to dance en pointe – as if that’s how she potters about her Sugar Plum house all day."

Peter Darrell's The Nutcracker, The List, December 2014

"The French variation (the Dance of the Mirlitons) was brilliantly executed by three French dancers, Laura Joffre, Claire Souet and Constance Devernay, who in their pink wigs and frothy cabaret corsets were as sweet and arch as a fondant fancy. "

"Constance Devernay (Gretel) is a splendid bossy boots, forever on Hansel's case."

Christopher Hampson's Hansel & Gretel, The Herald, December 2013

"Constance Devernay’s Gretel is a particular star for her fresh energy and expansive jumps."

Christopher Hampson's Hansel & Gretel, The Arts Desk, December 2013

"There’s a key moment early on when both kneel and bow down, as if in obeisance to some greater force. As Faith (Constance Devernay) enters over the rear ramp, dressed in a white tunic, her name evidently bears significance. At first, to plangent music for the basson, she treats both brothers equally before driving them literally up the wall. On pointe, she is delicate and athletic, her legs and feet like weapons."

Christopher Hampson's The Rite of Spring, Dance Tabs, October 2013

"Constance Devernay debuts in the Bad Snowflake role with spirited spiky malevolence."

Ashley Page's The Nutcracker, The Herald, January 2010
