What People Are Saying

Governor Dannel P. Malloy
Governor of Connecticut
After Governor Malloy attended the performance of Windows at York CI with First Lady and Greater Hartford Arts Council Executive Director Cathy Malloy, the Governor acknowledged the women for their courage in sharing their stories and concluded by saying that ” …in your writings, in your speech, in your dance, in your overall performance–you reflect the humanity that is within each of you and within a broader society…congratulations on your success in this performance…and thank you, Judy (Dworin).”.

And we all breathed in the spoken and sung words as part of the magic of movement. Read more
