"Thank you Mary,

It was an amazing night! I was MOST impressed with the way the two dance groups blended, melded, collaborated. It showed what they were talking about, the integration of traditional and contemporary art forms, in the way they worked—very powerful. I spoke with an employee from Freightliner, our Presenting Sponsor, who said she was so moved that she was crying during the dance sets.

Please let all the dancers know again how much we appreciated their participation in the 2005 Washington Park Summer Festival. Painted Sky provided a perfect ending to a long run of great performances."
