"It was a truly wonderful program. One easily forgets how rare and wonderful live performance is, and how special it is to connect with the artists. The audience and the performers thrive and feed each other. It is such a unique special experience. Sitting daily in a small cubicle to watch an art performance on T.V is beyond compare. "

"Truly one of the best things that has happened to me in my adult life was meeting Sue Skaddan and dancing with her organization, Helping Hearts through the Arts (HHA). I cherish the sisterhood that has developed among us dancers. Also, we have gotten to work with men and women who not only are brilliant choreographers, but they are people who are good and genuine to the core—people who want to spread good in the world like we dancers do. With HHA, we truly get to feel the joy of dance and share it with others. It is remarkable. Thank you, Sue!"

"Please pass on my deep appreciation to all who were a part of the HHA presentation here at Greenspring, June 8th. It was a privilege to be in the audience and experience the dynamic creative energy from all who participated. All our hearts were 'helped" for sure. Living at Greenspring, for many, limits attending such exceptional programs out in the community."

“I felt privileged to have witnessed your breathtaking performance on the Mall. The choreography was stunning, relying on the intricate exchange of elegant movements from the seasoned dancers and drawing the audience in without attention-grabbing jumps and lifts. The lifelong training of the corps was obvious through their grace, precision, and sharptechnique. I can’t wait for the next opportunity to see them perform.
"The dances..they were more beautiful, one after the other...It was so gracious and full of lovely movements. Actually I was overwhelmed. It really was outstanding and I congratulate you." -Estelle
"It was a totally fun event! Talent, really cool dance outfits, and energy, energy, energy!"
