Words from our readers

I gave a copy of the Pittsburgh Ballet piece [“Ballet Scene: A Sensory-Sensitive Show,” July 2014] to a friend who has a child with autism. He is a classical pianist and founded a local support organization for parents and children with autism. He approached a company about opening their Nutcracker dress rehearsal, but they couldn’t accommodate him. They suggested another company, who agreed to open their December 12 rehearsal to these local families.

You planted the seed and look what grew.

What a wonderful, inspirational magazine! I got a buzz out of seeing [my book] Dancing in the Dark on page 40 [“Page Turners,” December 2014].
