    "...the precocious Elise Miller...only 14 and a student of Yuri Grigoriev School of Ballet,
    was the brightest beacon on stage Saturday.  Armed with formidable technique and easy
    musicality, her sparkling presence lighted the stage." 
    (Laura Bleiberg, Orange County Register, Dec. 4, 2006)
