'Inspired by themes of nature, and specifically, the butterfly, Where Butterflies Dance dually captures the essence of human emotion and life's experiences, conveyed by the butterfly's universal symbolism of beauty, love, hope, death, rebirth and transformation. Ann's piano playing is at once dynamic yet restrained, with a uniquely artful style that often reminds me of a constant gentle stream, cascading over stones and all its subtle nuances. Where Butterflies Dance is a thoroughly outstanding album and the compositions lingered in my mind long after the listening experience had concluded. Deeply passionate about the environment and its many afflictions, Ann so eloquently conveys a message of environmental awareness through her music, expressing her passion with originality, sentimentality and immaculate beauty.'

'Ann's piano playing is gorgeous throughout this album, that is the best way to explain it. There is a flow and natural rhythm like what mother earth so generously gives us all. A heartbeat of life that pulsates, ebbs and flows like the tides...magical.'
—Keith Hannaleck, New Age Music Reviews 5 Stars
Ann Sweeten has done a wonderful job of putting together a recording that offers a lot of reflection, introspection, and musical picture painting. ..reminiscent of something written by the great impressionists...out of the ordinary...'
—Donovan Johnson, Enlightened Piano
This latest release by Ann Sweeten, like the butterfly itself, is a thing of delicate beauty in motion, symbolizing grace, transformation, and renewal. An inspired work of art from one of the genre's premier pianists.'
