|"It was a special treat to have you perform for our first program of the summer. The graceful and theatrical dance movements were beautiful.
Providing the audience the opportunity to act like monkeys and try on the masks allowed the children to feel part of the program. You wisely
used this opportunity to diffuse energy so they would be ready for the folktale dance that followed. Thank you for introducing our patrons to
some Balinese culture through you beautiful costumes and dance music.
