I wanted to be Maria Tallchief so badly when I was a girl that I sprained my ankle three times in the third grade. She was graceful and beautiful, yes, but also brave and strong and stood up for her people and I loved it. I still want to be the Firebird. We want to teach our girls that the arts are beautiful and important and can inspire them to be better in their lives. To do that, we’ll be taking them to the ballet, the theatre, the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage (so they know they can see great art for free) and all over the amazing city that sometimes, even if you live here, is easy to miss.
Help us give our girls the arts at bit.ly/25days25girls.
