"Ballet is qualitative entertainment. It's important that young people have an exposure to things with a deeper dimension. I recommend that the El Paso community support El Paso City Ballet." (Edward Villella, CEO of Miami City Ballet, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Arts, and widely recognized as the greatest American male ballet dancer)
