And when the foreign armies eventually pull out of Iraq, if the country goes over completely to the fundamentalists, the situation for dance will only get worse. How tragic, that those innocent children should be denied something that gives them hope and a sense of accomplishment.
But let's not forget that the school -- and culture generally -- was thriving before the foreign armies arrived. Now it is threatened and barely hanging on. I feel terribly sad that we Americans have taken ballet away from these children.
