“We give to The Washington Ballet because there is nothing that takes the place of beautiful classical dancers… and if the dancers can also be edgy and sassy, what’s not to love?  We both believe that this art form should be widely available. The Washington Ballet is unique in this metropolitan area and we support it with gusto!”
-Eve and William Lilley
