Professional Testimonials

“I strongly believe that we need more organizations like Imagine the Impossible who are
committed to developing and fostering confidence, along with excellence in our young people
today. ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ and Imagine the Impossible is playing a major role in
cultivating and nurturing the children they serve.”

Dallas County Youth Development Programs, Angela Peters, Community Outreach Specialist

"[This] initiative . . . utilizes the media of dance to teach discipline and cooperation and to
build self-esteem for female inmates
. . . This is a rehabilitative concept that brings the artists of the community together with the inmate population with positive results for both."

TACONIC Correctional Facility, Bridgit Gladwin, Superinendent

"It is my pleasure to nominate Mary Johnson, Founder and Executive Director of Imagine the Impossible for the Coming Up Taller Award 2008 ... It is amazing to watch this precious group of children, who would otherwise never have an opportunity to learn classic ballet, perform their dances ... The children are clearly sparkling with new self esteem and demonstrating the self-control necessary for ballet. These skills and dreams wll enhance their performance in school and in all areas of their lives ... Imagine the Impossible is well deserving of the Coming Up Taller Award 2008."

The Women's Museum, Wanda R Brice, CEO
