2012 Roll Call: Dance World Farewell - A Final Goodbye to Those Who Passed Away in 2012

December 18

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.
