...and a brief quote:
Passion, a word not nearly powerful enough, helps describe Joy's dedication to classic ballet. Her career began with the legendary George Balanchine when she was a 16-year-old dancer with the New York City Ballet ("Symphony in C," "Swan Lake," "Firebird," and many others). It continued with nearly four decades of teaching aspiring young dancers in a score of schools. She was founder, manager or director (or all three) in local and regional companies from Oklahoma to California to Utah.
Joy Feldman Ludlow died Saturday night (June 9, 2012) in her home in Salt Lake City, surrounded and embraced by her loved ones. She hadn't smoked in 25 years, but the cause of death was lung cancer. She was 75.
