“Lancaster deploys her dancers well in space, and she exploits beautifully klezmer’s loopy slightly sinister, and deeply infectious rhythms, melodies, and unexpected tempo changes." - Tasmin Nutter, The Arts Cure New York, NY
“St. John’s Wort,” by Janice Lancaster, was like whipped cream and a cherry atop the evening." - Rachel Levin, Explore Dance Palm Desert, CA
“Ms. Lancaster produced a rhythmic Hellzapoppin.” - Robert Plyler, The Sunday Post Journal Jamestown, NY
“One of the side effects of the herb St. John’s Wort is restlessness. But restless doesn’t begin to describe the energy crackling through Lancaster’s dance of the same name.” - Bob Workmon, Winston-Salem Journal, NC

It has been toured internationally by Hubbard St. 2 Dance Company (Chicago), and also performed at City Dance Center, Roger Williams University, NC School of the Arts, Joyce Soho, Ailey Citigroup Theatre, and the McCallum Theatre.
