Needless to say, our assembly "swept me off my feet." It was highly entertaining, but more importantly it was educational and engaging. They did a deft job of seamlessly connecting the music, dance, poetry and historical context into an amazing artistic display that allowed students to be both moved and educated. The high quality and professionalism displayed by the Montalvo Arts Center makes them the perfect partners for our school and any other that has the privilege to work with them.
