As we approach the end of 2012 Broadway Dance World would like to pay tribute to those who passed away this year.
Besides dancers they were teachers, musicians, scene designers, composers, administrators, writers, producers, scene designers and board members. Some were very prominent, others had fleeting careers. It does not make a difference. They gave of themselves and for that alone we owe them our gratitude.
While we have tried to be as inclusive as possible, there are names we may have overlooked. If you have a name that you would like included please write to us.
To all those cited below we thank you for your contributions to the dance world. We will not see your likes again.

A passionate and enthusiastic dance lover with other interests in books, theater, music and architecture. I have served as the director of the docent program at the New York City Ballet. I am interested in all facets of dance, and do not limit myself to only one dance brand, as I call it. This encompasses ballet, modern, folk and whatever else there is. Call me eclectic. |
