"When we teach a child to sing or
play the flute, we teach her how to
listen. When we teach her to draw,
we teach her to see. When we teach a
child to dance, we teach him about
his body and about space, and when he acts on a stage, he learns about
character and motivation. When we teach
a child design, we reveal the

children about the folk and traditional arts and the great masterpieces
of the world, we teach them to
celebrate their roots and find their own place in history."
"What we do is look for high standards of excellence
in the arts."
