I saw my dream realized. … There are no words for it, it was just absolutely wonderful to me.”

“They are so technically perfect and that, of course, I respect, but I can also tell they are dancing from the heart and the soul and that is the ultimate.”

“In my heart I believe that through this type of performance, this kind of work, we can actually heal the world and [offer] great hope. 

“Gratitude is my feeling. Gratitude that [the dancers] would devote their beautiful young lives to improving the world, and doing it through the gifts that were given to them and that they share with us.”
