"The future belongs to young people with an education and the imagination to create."
~President Barack Obama
“I believe arts education in music, theater, dance, and the visual arts is one of the most creative ways we have to find the gold that is buried just beneath the surface. Children have an enthusiasm for life, a spark of creativity, and vivid imaginations that need training – training that prepares them to become confident young men and women.”
-Richard W. Riley, Former US Secretary of Education
