She was a good friend of my first teacher, Sylvia Umlas (National Academy) and sometimes would come to the studio and guest teach. As a child, she was my first "real ballerina"! She was kind and lyrical and we all loved when she came. Her movements were fluid and lovely, and she was inspiring to me as a young ballet student. I've never forgotten....50 years later.... hard to believe that she was 95.

Thank you for that memory, treschic53.

Welcome to BalletAlert! I'm sorry it was Ms. Lyon's death that brought you here, but I hope you'll join in some of our discussions.
